Separate Crashes send 3 to hospital

Laurel wrecks occur on KY 80, KY 192

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

Two separate traffic crashes sent three people to St. Joseph Hospital London Friday morning.

The first crash happened just before 8 a.m.

According to Laurel County Sheriff John Root, the crash happened on KY 80 west of London.

Root said a Toyota Camry, driven by 60-year-old Sandra LeMasters, of London, turned from Hawk Creek Road onto KY 80 toward the city.

LeMasters pulled into the path of a Nissan Altima, driven by 20-year-old Bethany Wilson, of Annville.

The crash left both vehicles in the middle of the intersection, according to Root.

Both women received non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to the hospital by Ambulance, Inc. of Laurel County.

Deputy James Sizemore investigated this crash, and reported that LeMasters did not observe lights on the approaching Nissan. Root explained there was extremely dense fog at the time of the crash, which contributed to poor visibility.

Assisting at that scene was Sgt. Josh Gaylor, Deputy Gilbert Acciardo, Bailiff Brandon Broughton, the Colony Fire Department, Laurel County EMS and the Kentucky Highway Safety Patrol. Root said there were several crashes caused by the fog Friday.

Another two-vehicle crash sent a teenager to St. Joseph’s Hospital London.

Root said that just before noon Friday, Acciardo investigated the crash on KY 192 just west of London.

A 17-year-old female from Keavy was driving a Pontiac Grand Prix eastbound on KY 192 behind a Dodge Durango, driven by a 17-year-old male from Lickfork.

The driver of the Dodge slowed for a vehicle making a left turn onto Country Court Circle Drive. That vehicle began to turn, but stopped when an approaching vehicle got too close.

The sudden stop caused the driver of the Dodge to stop quickly, but the driver of the Pontiac failed to stop in time, rear-ending the Dodge.

That crash left the eastbound lane blocked.

The driver of the Pontiac was transported by Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County with injuries to her hands and face, according to Root. The driver of the Dodge reported neck injuries, but was not transported.
