Calloway County Deputy Involved in Collision
By West Kentucky Star Staff
CALLOWAY COUNTY - A Calloway County Sheriff's deputy was involved in a two-vehicle crash on Thursday.

Troopers with the Kentucky State Police arrived just east of McDougal Road where they learned that 59-year-old Thomas Bailey of Murray, a Calloway County deputy, was responding to an emergency with his emergency lights activated while heading east on KY 280. Troopers say that 45-year-old Jennifer Rook of Murray was also traveling east in front of Bailey. 

After topping a hill near McDougal Road, Bailey says he saw Rook slow her vehicle, so he attempted to pass her on the left side.

Rook reportedly noticed Bailey start to pass her, and made a left turn into a driveway, believing Bailey would have more room to pass. Bailey then attempted to avoid Rook by swerving back into the eastbound lane of traffic, but the front bumper of Bailey's vehicle struck the rear-end of Rook's vehicle.

Bailey and Rook both confirmed possible injuries, but refused treatment.
