Staff Report

The Kentucky State Police is investigating a one vehicle injury collision last week on State Route 365, about 11 miles east of Marion in Crittenden County.

Investigators believe Amelia Farthing, 69, of Princeton, was operating a 2006 Ford Escape northbound on State Route 365 with her husband, Joseph Farthing, 80, also of Princeton, as a passenger. For unknown reasons, Farthing ran off of the right side of roadway and traveled down an earth embankment before overturning.

The vehicle came to final rest on the passenger side.

Amelia Farthing was transported by Crittenden County EMS to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Indiana. Joseph Farthing was flown from the scene by Air Evac to the same hospital.

Crittenden County EMS, Mattoon Volunteer Fire Department, Crittenden County Sheriff’s Department, and Air Evac assisted at the scene.
