AQUALA ARRESTEBENEZER, Ky. (3/12/18) — A two-vehicle, head-on collision resulted in DUI charges for a Greenville woman Saturday evening.

Kentucky State Police said Trooper Justin Cornett arrived shortly after 6:30 p.m. to the accident on Kentucky 176 just west of Ebenezer. Cornett reported a 2012 white Ford Escape and a 1995 Jeep Cherokee had hit head on, both drivers were trapped inside their vehicles and the Ford Escape was on fire.

KSP said the fire was quickly extinguished and both drivers removed from the vehicles with help from the Drakesboro Volunteer and Greenville fire departments.

Cornett’s investigation found that Aquaya Blake, 26, was driving the Ford Escape headed west on Kentucky 176, when she crossed the double yellow center lines and struck the Jeep Cherokee, driven by 31-year-old Heather Kendrick, said police.

Kendrick was flown by PHI medical helicopter to St. Mary’s in Evansville, Indiana for treatment of non-life threatening injuries while Blake was transported to Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital by Muhlenberg County EMS, where she was treated for minor injuries.

Blake was then charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs with aggravated circumstances – first offense and transported to Muhlenberg County Detention Center.

Muhlenberg County Sheriff’s Office also assisted at the scene.
