Woman critically Injured in Greenville accident

Alcohol, speed suspected to be factors in crash

GREENVILLE — A woman was critically injured in a single-car accident around 5 p.m. Saturday, according to a release from CART — Combined Accident Reconstruction Team.

Delores Watson of Borden was transported to University of Louisville Hospital with serious injuries after her car left Borden Road and struck a tree.

The preliminary investigation reveals that a beige 2002 Mercury Mountaineer driven by Watson was traveling south on Borden Road when it left the roadway to the right and the driver overcorrected to the left. The vehicle then left the roadway and struck a tree. Alcohol and speed are believed to have contributed to the crash, according to the release.

CART was formed in July 2007, by Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson, to investigate all fatality crashes and those involving serious bodily injury that may result in criminal charges. CART members have additional training in crash reconstruction and scene diagramming.
