Alcohol a factor in Muhlenberg Co. wreck

Alcohol is listed as a factor in a head-on collision Monday morning in Muhlenberg County that sent a woman to an Evansville hospital.

A news release from Kentucky State Police says 26-year old Aquaya Blake of Greenville had been headed west on KY 176 when she crossed the center line and struck an eastbound Jeep driven by 31-year old Heather Kendrick of Greenville.

Both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles and Kendrick was flown by helicopter to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville for non-life-threatening injuries. Blake was treated for minor injuries at Muhlenberg Community Hospital and was later arrested for DUI.
