On Friday, the Barren County Sheriff’s Office responded to a wreck with injury on the Burkesville Road. A semi driven by Dennis R. Stephens, 47, of Glasgow was traveling eastbound while towing another semi truck. The steering on the towed semi broke free, went off the right side of the roadway going down an earth embankment striking trees with the driver’s side of the semi. The towed semi then went off the left side of the roadway striking a ditch, stone driveway, two mailboxes, before entering the path of a 1993 Saturn passenger car driven by Janet Gatliff, 59, of Summer Shade. The Saturn and Semi collided in the westbound lane and came to a stop. Both Gatliff, and a passenger in her vehicle 36 year old John P. Descoteaux also of Summer Shade, was transported by Barren Metcalfe EMS to TJ Samson Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the accident. Deputy Aaron Bennett investigated the accident and was assisted by the East Barren Fire Department.
