Man Pinned Under ATV Following Rollover Accident

Posted: Updated:

PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)-- An ATV accident on Price Valley Road sent one man to the UK Hospital for treatment of injuries received Thursday.

At approximately 1:30 p.m. police responded to a 911 report of an injury accident involving a single ATV pulling a utility trailer loaded with firewood. Upon arrival at the scene on Price Valley Road, officials found Jeffrey Simpson, 54, of Somerset, pinned under an overturned ATV.

Preliminary investigation revealed that Simpson was pulling a heavy trailer load of wood when he lost control of his ATV as he started down a steep hill. The ATV was forced into a ditch where it overturned, pinning the victim under it.

Officials were able to free Simpson from the wreckage and he was treated by EMS before being transported to a landing zone on east Highway 80. He was then airlifted by Air Methods to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.

Clinics across Kentucky are busier this January than usual. "We've seen a high volume recently, and it seems to be peaking earlier this season than it has in past seasons," said Nurse Practitioner Lisa Hill.
