On Thursday, May 28 at approximately 6:30 p.m. the Floyd County Police Department received a call regarding a head-on injury crash on SR 111 near Gap Hollow Road. The Floyd County Combined Accident Reconstruction Team (CART) was called to the scene to assist with the investigation.
The Floyd County CART Team was formed in July 2007 by Floyd County Prosecutor to investigate all fatal crashes and crashes which result in serious bodily injury that may result in death or the potential for the filing of criminal charges. CART Members have additional training in crash reconstruction and scene diagramming.
The preliminary investigation shows that a Ford Probe driven by Atom McConnell, age 16, of Brooks, Kentucky was traveling north on SR 111 when it crossed the center line and struck a southbound Ford Explorer driven by Tornya Kelton-Nunley, age 41, of Jeffersonville. McConnell was transported to Kosair Children’s Hospital with severe injuries to his legs and is listed in serious condition. Kelton-Nunley was transported to the University of Louisville Hospital with injuries to her chest and is listed in good condition. McConnell’s 13 year old brother, Austin McConnell was a passenger in his vehicle and was transported to Kosair Children’s Hospital. His condition is also listed as serious. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
Occupants of both vehicles were wearing seat belts which is believed to have reduced their injuries. It is not believed at this time that alcohol was a factor in the crash. SR 111 was closed for approximately two hours during the on-scene investigation. This investigation is continuing.
Assisting agencies included: Floyd County Police Department, New Albany Police Department, Indiana State Police, Yellow Ambulance, and New Chapel Fire Department.
