Janet McCullough was driving southbound on 31 when her vehicle entered the south bound ditch and struck a mailbox.
The vehicle continued in the ditch and vaulted the north embankment of TR 190 and landed on the south side of 190 where it struck a pole.
When the vehicle hit the pole, it rolled over and came to rest on its roof.
McCullough said she doesn’t remember much about the accident, other than a woman she identified as Mandy Overly.
McCullough stated that she learned later that Overly’s daughter told her mom that someone took out the mailbox, which prompted Overly to investigate.
Overly quickly went to the scene and provided care and comfort to the accident victim until emergency crews arrived.
McCullough said she was out of the car, but was confused.
She said she has no doubt that Overly stopped her from walking onto the road which could have resulted in a tragic outcome.
The healing process for McCullough is underway, but she said she will be able to handle that knowing the situation could have been much worse.
She wanted to express her deep felt appreciation to Overly and all others who came to her aid that day.
That includes the Hardin County Sheriff’s Deputies, paramedics from BKP and firefighters from the Kenton Fire Department and Southeast Hardin Northwest Union who all helped to make a dark day in her life a little brighter.
