Four-Vehicle Injury Collision Occurs on Pennyrile Parkway

Accident Injuries 01 300EARLINGTON, Ky (3/23/14) — Kentucky State Police were summoned to the site of a four-vehicle, injury collision at 12:53 p.m. Saturday, March 22 at the 39 mile marker on the Pennyrile Parkway in Hopkins County.

According to a KSP report, Lonnie Todd, 90, of Madisonville was driving a 1990 Ford Ranger pickup headed north on the parkway at the 40 mile marker in the right lane of travel while Thomas Drake, 40, of White Plains was driving a 1991 Ford F-250 pickup behind Todd's truck.

Bill Pailin, Jr., 44, of Covington, Tenn., was driving a Ford Freestyle station wagon behind Drake while Paula Berry, 46, of Mortons Gap was driving a 2005 Toyota Corolla behind Pailin.

For an unknown reason, Todd stopped in the right northbound lane just south of exit 40. Drake's vehicle collided with the rear bumper of Todd's vehicle. The impact caused Todd's and Drake's trucks to cross into the emergency strip striking a guardrail. The impact then caused Todd's truck to come to rest on top of the guardrail at the northbound Kentucky 2171 overpass facing north. Drake's truck came to final rest in the northbound emergency strip facing north.

Pailin attempted to slow to avoid a second collision but was struck in the rear by Berry's car. Pailin's vehicle came to final rest partially in the median facing north. Berry's vehicle came to final rest in the right lane of travel facing northeast.

Todd was transported by ambulance to Baptist Regional Medical Center for injuries sustained in the collision. Pailin's passengers, Robert Shelton, 70, of Madisonville Tonia Pailin, 36, and Jaeda Pailin, 7, both of Covington, Tenn., Beatrice Davie, 90, of Lafayete, Ky., and Lakarra Delauette, 20, of Memphis, Tenn., were not injured.

All vehicle occupants were wearing seatbelts.
