HARRODSBURG - Mercer County Magistrate Wayne Jackson called it an act of God.
With a only slight concussion and a small cut on his head, Jackson survived a severe car accident May 15 on Interstate 64 in Shelby County.
Jackson was on his way to work when he lost control of his Nissan Pathfinder during a torrential rain and hit a guardrail. The car flipped and slid on its top for about 350 feet before coming to a stop, he said. The vehicle was totaled.
"It was pouring down the rain," Jackson said. "There was a lot of traffic in the right-hand lane. Thankfully no one was passing at the time."
