Debbie Stewart, 56, of Artemus, driving a Lincoln MKZ, was traveling north on U.S. 25E when a box truck, operated by Donald C. Bright, 69, of Gray, reportedly pulled out from KY 233, drove through the intersection and crossed directly into Stewart’s path.

Stewart was unable to avoid the collision and struck the box truck causing her vehicle to flip, coming to rest on its roof against the guardrail.

Stewart was extricated from her vehicle and transported to Baptist Health Corbin with severe back and neck pain.

Bright refused medical treatment.

No alcohol or drugs are suspected to be a factor in the crash.
