The Clark County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched at 9:34 p.m. to a two vehicle accident on Highway 62 at Stacy Springs Court on Monday evening, December 20.
The first Sheriff’s Deputy on scene was Eric Balingit. Also on scene were the Charlestown Police Department and New Chapel Fire and EMS.

Patricia Early, 73, of Charlestown was traveling east on State Road 62 in the slow lane in her 2003 Hyundai and according to the police report, veered off to the left, crossing the center median into oncoming traffic in the westbound lanes of Highway 62. Balingit used the snow tracks in the median to determine the Hyundai crossed the median.
Early’s vehicle was struck by a 1998 Buick driven by Skyler Ford, 23, of Jeffersonville, as he was traveling in the westbound lanes of Highway 62.
Early was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ford suffered injuries to his right leg and was taken to University of Louisville Hospital for treatment by New Chapel EMS. His front seat passenger and two juvenile passengers were also taken to University of Louisville Hospital for evaluation and treatment.
Early was born August 16, 1937 to Roy and Muriel Willis Floyd in Carrollton, Kentucky. She was a retired clerk for U.S. Census Bureau. Early was a member of the American Legion Post 335 Auxiliary and the V.F.W. Post 1427 Auxiliary. She was also a member of the Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church.
Early is survived by two daughters, Teresa Wiedemer of Charlestown and Kim Meadors of Marysville; brothers, Ernest “Buck” Floyd of Charlestown and Roy “Jr” Floyd of Charlestown; sister, Jannie Clark of Scottsburg and grandchildren, James A. Early, Caitlin Wiedemer, Drexler Meadors and Desiree Meadors.
