An oncoming 2018 gray Kia Optima driven by 21-year-old Jacy Jones of Bowling Green was headed west on Kentucky 70 East toward Beechmont.

Police said Jones attempted to avoid the collision by entering the eastbound lane, however, Morrow could not maintain control of her vehicle and re-entered the eastbound lane and struck Jones’s vehicle head on.

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.
