A man was flown to Louisville following a crash on Rabbit Flat Road in Leitchfield Sunday night, Feb. 21.

At around 7:42 p.m. on Sunday, the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO), Leitchfield Fire Department, and Grayson County Emergency Medical Services (GCEMS) responded to the scene of the accident near the 500 block of Rabbit Flat Road.

Investigating GCSO Deputy Jarrod Mudd said that, prior to the crash, the driver, Randy Carter, was travelling on Rabbit Flat Road toward Shrewsbury when he failed to negotiate a curve.

The vehicle Carter was driving then went through a guardrail and over a creek, ejecting Carter, whom was not wearing a seatbelt, from the vehicle, according to Mudd.

The car came to a rest upside down on the other side of the creek, and first responders discovered Carter responsive but lying in a field between the creek and the car, Mudd said.

Carter was transported from the scene by GCEMS to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center, and, from there, he was flown to University of Louisville Hospital to be treated for critical, accident-related injuries, according to Mudd.
