Woman dies in head-on collision

CORBIN — By Kristina Smith / Staff Writer

One woman was killed and three others were injured in a head-on collision Saturday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Darrell Eversole, 31, of London, was driving a Chevrolet pickup truck westbound on KY-1956 around 1 a.m. when he drove off the shoulder and into a ditch. Eversole overcorrected the truck in an attempt to get back on the road when he traveled across the median and collided head-on with a Chevrolet Blazer, Root said.

A passenger in the Blazer, Trina Angel, 40, of McKee, was transported to St. Joseph’s Medical Center in London where she was pronounced dead.

The driver of the Blazer, Polly Brock, 29, of East Bernstadt, was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center with serious injuries. Also airlifted to the UK Medical Center was Eversole.

A passenger in the truck, James Woolum, 25, of London, sustained possible injuries.

As of 4:30 p.m. Sunday, UK Medical Center officials said Eversole is in fair condition, but Brock remains in serious condition.

Deputy Shawn Boroviak is investigating the crash. Assisting Boroviak at the crash were Deputy Tyler Morris and Kentucky State Police troopers Mike King and Chris Saunders.

Also assisting at the scene were the London-Laurel Rescue Squad, Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County, Swiss Colony Volunteer Fire Department, Doug Bowling with the Laurel County Coroner’s Office, a PHI helicopter and an Air Methods helicopter.
