Three people were injured in two separate automobile accidents in Grayson County last week.
Chad Riddle, a 23-year-old Louisville resident, was operating a 2002 Kawasaki EX250 motorcycle on Bowling Green Road approximately five miles south of Caneyville on Saturday afternoon, when he ran off of the roadway, injuring himself and a passenger, according to the accident report filed by Deputy Buck Meredith of the Grayson County Sheriff’s Department.
A witness told Meredith that as Riddle’s motorcycle rounded a curve on the 6,000 block of Bowling Green Road, he straightened the wheels and for unknown reasons left the roadway, causing the bike to be laid down on its side.
The passenger, 22-year-old Jessica Stewart, also of Louisville, was thrown from the motorcycle.
Riddle was rendered unconscious, according to the report, and suffered injuries to the arms/hands.
Stewart suffered multiple potential injuries.
Grayson County EMS responded and transported the victims to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center for treatment.
In a separate incident on Monday, August 6, Barbara Geary, 51, of Clarkson, was travelling west at around the 7,200 block of Elizabethtown Road when she fell asleep at the wheel at approximately 11 p.m. according to the accident report filed with the sheriff’s department.
Geary’s 2001 Ford Ranger ran off of the shoulder of the roadway before striking a mailbox, travelling into a ditch and finally striking a group of trees in a yard belonging to Clarkson-area resident Hugo Cisneros.
Geary suffered a back injury and was treated by GCEMS. She was transported to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center for further assessment.
