2012-05-22 - KY 210, Campbellsville, KY - Photo by April Shepperd. Here are some additional pictures of the accident that occurred on Hwy. 210 in Campbellsville on Sunday. We were traveling from Elizabethtown and came upon the accident just after it happened. I took these with my camera phone so the quality is not very good.
