Henderson, KY 5/16/21- Just before 1PM Sunday, emergency responders with the Baskett Fire Department and Henderson Rescue Squad were called to assist the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office on U.S. 60 East near Ernest Lane with a head-on accident with injuries involving three vehicles.

During the investigation, deputies discovered that Erica French (42) was operating a U.S. Postal Service mail truck traveling west when she attempted to do a U-turn to go back east. While attempting to get turned around, French made contact with Dexter Bratcher (66) who was also traveling west.
