Accident with Injuries at 88 MM on I-24

accidentwinjuries2 300CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ky. (6/13/13) – On Wednesday, June 12, 2013, Kentucky State Police (KSP) responded to a report of a two-vehicle collision at the 88 mile marker of I-24.
 
Once on the scene, Troopers found that 36-year-old Donald Coffey, of Clarksville, was operating a 2012 Jeep Wrangler on I-24 at the 88 Mile Marker in the eastbound lane of travel, in the construction work zone. At the same time, 67-year-old Joel Warhurst, also of Clarksville, was operating a 2004 Mazda Miata on I-24 in the eastbound lane of travel, behind Donald Coffey. Coffey was stopped in traffic in the right eastbound lane of travel. The front bumper of Warhurst’s vehicle then struck the rear bumper of Coffey’s vehicle, causing the rear portion of Coffey’s vehicle to become airborne. The impact then caused Coffey’s vehicle to exit the eastbound shoulder, into a ditch, where the vehicle came to final rest facing south. Warhurst’s vehicle came to final rest in the middle of the eastbound lanes of travel, facing southeast.
 
Warhurst was transported by Christian County EMS to Gateway Medical Center in Clarksville, TN, for injuries sustained as a result of the collision.
