Sunday afternoon shortly after 4, deputies from the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a car accident in the 11000 block of US 41-A.

Deputies say that 48-year-old James Yancy of Como, MS was traveling northbound on US 41-A when, for an unknown reason, his vehicle drifted into the southbound lane, into the path of a car driven by 35-year-old Coty Newman of Clay Kentucky.

Newman’s car struck Yancy’s vehicle, deputies say, causing Yancy’s car to overturn multiple times.

Authorities say Yancy’s car ended up striking a mailbox, eventually coming to rest on the west side of the roadway.

Deputies say Newman’s car slid sideways and went across the northbound lanes where it stuck the rear of a Jeep driven by 33-year-old Kevin Crowley of Sebree, Kentucky.

Newman and Yancy refused treatment, authorities say, and two passengers in Crowley’s vehicle were taken to the hospital and treated for their injuries.

US 41-A was closed for about 90 minutes.
