A Fulton man was injured Friday afternoon when his vehicle ran off U.S. Highway 51 in Fulton County, Ky., and overturned several times.
David Wellborn, 33, was injured in a one-vehicle crash that occurred about 12:15 p.m. on Highway 51 at KY 294, according to the Kentucky State Police.
He was transported by Tri City Ambulance Service to Parkway Regional Hospital in Fulton and then transferred by Air Evac Lifeteam to St. Francis Medical Center.
The KSP reported Wellborn was northbound on Highway 51, near the intersection with KY 294, when he swerved to miss an animal in the roadway, causing him to lose control of his 2003 Ford truck. He then apparently overcorrected, struck an earth embankment and rolled multiple times.
The accident remains under investigation.
The KSP was also assisted at the scene by the Fulton County (Ky.) Sheriff’s Department, Fulton Fire Department and Water Valley (Ky.) Fire Department.
