  • Accident injures two, one was suffering from gunshot wound

     

    Few details have been released about a bizarre accident in Taylorsville last Thursday that sent two people to the hospital, one of whom was suffering a gunshot wound.

    The report of a single vehicle accident came in a little after 5:30 p.m. when a Nissan Frontier, traveling west on KY 44 between the downtown bridge and the Spencer County Middle School, apparently left the road, went through a guard rail, crashed through a neighborhood sign and landed upside down on a small hill. Witnesses said the vehicle was traveling at a very high rate of speed.

    After some debate, the Spencer County Board of Education voted 4-1 to raise the school real estate property tax rate two percent, to 63.5 percent, but suggested they are approaching a line they won’t cross.

    Superintendent Chuck Adams made the recommendation, and said the additional costs of full-day kindergarten and the focus on getting students college and career ready justifies the increase to 63.5 per $100 of assessed value this year. The motor vehicle tax was set at 56 cents per $100 and the utility tax rate is three percent.
