The Grayson County Sheriff and Clarkson Fire Departments, along with EMS, responded to a two-car accident at the intersection of Hwy 88 and Main Street in Clarkson about 12:30 on Friday afternoon.
A blue Dodge Ram 1500, driven by 59-year old Marvin Childress of Leitchfield, was turning west (left) off of Hwy 88 onto Main Street when Childress looked east to see if the road was clear of traffic. Seeing no westbound vehicles, he turned onto Main Street, rear-ending a black Chevrolet Cobalt, driven by 58-year old Sherlene Wright of Caneyville, who was stopped in the road waiting to turn right into the Citgo station.
Wright was transported to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Childress, who was not injured, took a female passenger to the ER after she complained of shoulder pain caused by the seatbelt.
