Kentucky State Police investigated a multiple-vehicle wreck with injuries this afternoon on KY 1-89, near Greenville.
State Police say the collision happened around 12:01 p.m. as Greenville Police Officer Wes Miller conducted a traffic stop on the southbound shoulder of KY 189.
Greenville Police Chief, 45-year old Darren Harvey of Greenville had pulled in behind Officer Miller to assist with the traffic stop.
Preliminary investigation indicated that 62-year old Elizabeth Gentry of Central City, crossed into the northbound lane to distance herself from the traffic and as a result of the lane change, Ms. Gentry’s vehicle struck the vehicle of 41-year old Nathan Berry of Dunmor, Kentucky, which caused her vehicle to spin around and hit the rear bumper of Chief Harvey’s vehicle.
Police say Chief Harvey was struck in the leg by Gentry’s vehicle while he stood between two police cruisers, while Berry’s vehicle overturned and came to rest on its passenger side.
Berry and his 21-year old wife, Trulie Berry and their 2-year old daughter, Elizabeth Berry were all transported by ambulance to the Muhlenberg Community Hospital for treatment.
Berry and his wife were extricated from the vehicle by mechanical means.
Ms. Gentry went uninjured in the wreck, while Chief Harvey did not seek medical treatment. Officer Miller and the subject that he had stopped were not injured.
