According to Henderson County Sheriff’s Office on Monday March 13th at approximately 1:25PM a collision on the south bound descent occurred when a 2006 Chevy Aveo operated by Jennifer Moore of Indiana, lost control and began to spin in the left lane. A 2012 KIA operated by Ruth Simpson of Henderson, swerved to the right to avoid Aveo, colliding with the 2004 Chrysler Sebring operated by Sara Burns of Indiana. The KIA and Sebring came to rest in the right lane against the guardrail. The Aveo came to rest in the left lane facing north. As traffic began to brake and stop to avoid the three vehicles the 1995 F350 operated by Dandridge Davis of Morganfield, stopped prior to striking the other stopped vehicles, when a 2016 Volvo tractor trailer operated by James Winters of Illinois was unable to stop in time to avoid striking the F350. The F350 was then pushed over the left lane bridge rail landing approximately 100 feet below the road surface of the bridge. The operator of the Aveo Jennifer Moore was transported to Methodist ER for her injuries and the operator of the F350 Dandridge Davis was taken to Deaconess ER for his injuries.
