(Bowling Green, KY)- The Kentucky State Police Post 3 Bowling Green responded to a single vehicle injury collision today at approx. 8:34 pm near the 6 mile marker on the William Natcher Parkway in Warren County.

The preliminary investigation indicated that Patrick Wood (41) of Frisco, IN was operating a commercial crane truck and was traveling southbound on the William Natcher Parkway when the left front tire blew out causing the operator to lose control and go into the median.

The driver was also pinned in the vehicle but was freed by Sergeant Chad Winn and two civilians, who were first present on the scene.

Mr. Wood was transported by the Medical Center EMS to the Medical Center in Bowling Green for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
