Upon arrival, deputies located two vehicles off the roadway of Blandville with severe front end damage due to a head on collision. Investigation showed that 19-year-old Robert Beasley of Bardwell, KY was traveling south bound on US62/Blandville in a 2002 Chevy Impala at the intersection of HWY 286.

The other vehicle, a 1993 Chevy Blazer driven by 55-year-old Ronald Thomas of Paducah, KY, was northbound on HWY 286. Thomas had stopped at the stop sign at the intersection of US62/Blandville and HWY 286 and then continued onto Blandville.

Investigation showed that both vehicles struck head-on just north of the intersection and came to rest off the shoulder of Blandville Road.
 
Shellie Elder, 18, of Paducah, KY, was a passenger in the 2002 Chevy Impala.
 
All occupants were transported by Mercy Regional EMS to area hospitals for minor injuries. Concord Fire Department and Speedy’s Towing assisted at the scene.
