2-car accident on Winchester Avenue

Garrison woman cut from car and taken to hospital

ASHLAND — One woman was transported to King’s Daughters Medical Center following a two-car accident at the intersection of Winchester Avenue and 23rd Street on Thursday.

The Ford Explorer driven by Vallerie Ginn of Vanceburg was stopped at the intersection at the stop sign. She was preparing to make a left turn from 23rd Street onto Winchester Avenue when she pulled out in front of a Pontiac Grand Am driven by William Duncan of Flatwoods, according to an accident report from the Ashland Police Department.

Ginn did not see Duncan, whose car hit the rear left quarter panel of the Explorer, causing it to flip on its side.

Also in Ginn’s vehicle were Angela Thoroughman and Brady Ginn, both listed from Garrison.

Crystal Delawder of Ashland was looking out a window at a friend’s house when she witnessed the accident. The Explorer turned on its side and slid down the road, Delawder said.

“I ran out of there without my shoes,” she said. “I saw there was a child in the car and we ran down to see what we could do.”

Delawder said another person at the scene handed a boy who appeared to be about 5 to her from the vehicle. He’d apparently unhooked himself from a car seat, she said.

“He was shaken up and scared. But he didn’t have no tears in his eyes,” she said. “He was asking for his mommy.”

Delawder said she checked the boy for injuries before he was taken by EMS workers, but saw nothing.

When emergency workers arrived, it was decided Thoroughman, a passenger in the Explorer, should be cut out from the vehicle by the Ashland Fire Department.

“Part of the problem with these SUVs is that they have a higher center of mass,” APD Capt. Todd Kelley said. “If they are hit in the side or if a car gets underneath them, they have a tendency to fall on their side. In other words, they’re very top-heavy.”
