New details have come to light regarding a crash in which a Harned woman lost her life on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 3.

According to the official accident report filed by investigating Leitchfield Police Officer Joe Overton, first responders were called to the intersection of William Thomason Byway (the bypass) and Salt River Road in Leitchfield at approximately 2:35 p.m. on Sunday.

Overton states in the report that Jane B. Bland, 78, of Leitchfield, was driving 1996 Ford Taurus and attempted to turn left from Salt River Road onto the southbound lane of the bypass.

Bland told police that she and her 87-year-old sister, Ina Davis, of Harned, the passenger in the Ford, were talking about where they wanted to eat and did not see a 1997 Chevrolet 4x4, driven by 64-year-old Michael Thompson, of Leitchfield, approaching, the report states.

Bland advised police that she proceeded to turn left resulting in the collision, according to the report.

Bland did not complain of an injury; however, Overton reports that he observed a small laceration to her right forearm. She was treated on the scene and transported to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center (TLRMC) with a suspected broken left leg.

Davis complained of multiple injuries over her entire body, was in shock, and suffered a laceration to her right hand, as well as a compound fracture to the lower right leg, the report states.

Davis was airlifted to University of Louisville Hospital by Air Evac, where she was pronounced deceased at 5:07 p.m.

Thompson complained of lacerations to his hands and discomfort in his abdomen and was transported by Grayson County EMS to TLRMC for treatment.

Both the Ford and the Chevrolet were disabled as a result of the collision. The Ford was towed from the scene by Holwager's, and the Chevrolet was towed from the scene by Stevenson's.
