Jones was transported by PHI medical helicopter to Vanderbilt University Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee for serious but not life-threatening injuries. Morrow was transported by Muhlenberg EMS to Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital.

KSP was also assisted by Beechmont Fire Department and Muhlenberg County Sheriff’s Office.
