wreck update1MANITOU, Ky. (10/16/13) – On Tuesday, October 15, SurfKY News reported an accident on KY 630, approximately one mile north of Manitou, on Tuesday, October 15, 2013, at 12:25 p.m. Kentucky State Police officials have released further details of the accident.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Ludie Milum, 85 of Madisonville, KY, was operating a 1999 Dodge Caravan southbound on KY 630 (Manitou Road) when the vehicle exited the right side of the roadway.
 
The vehicle traveled with the passenger side off the roadway for approximately 185 feet before striking a small driveway which caused the vehicle to exit the roadway and drop down to the grass which was several feet lower than the roadway. The vehicle traveled approximately 176 feet off the roadway before coming to a driveway at road level. The vehicle struck this driveway which acted as a ramp causing the vehicle to become airborne for approximately 86 feet. The vehicle struck front first into the ground causing it to rotate end over end. As it rotated, the back end struck the ground and the front struck a tree. The vehicle came to rest against the tree with the front in the air.
 
Ms. Milum had to be removed from the vehicle by rescue personnel. She was transported via ambulance to Baptist Health Madisonville for treatment. She was later transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville, IN. She was wearing a seatbelt. There were no passengers involved.
 
Trooper First Class John Komar investigated the collision. The Manitou Volunteer Fire Department, the Nebo Volunteer Fire Department, and Medical Center Ambulance Service assisted at the scene.
