A two-car crash Saturday sent five people, including two children, to area hospitals.
Laurel County Sheriff John Root said the crash was on KY 490 north of London.
Root explained a 1989 Chevrolet light-duty truck driven by Rodney Simpson, 35, of East Bernstadt was on KY 1376 preparing to turn onto KY 490.
Simpson apparently pulled into the path of a Ford Ranger driven by 30-year-old Emanuel Gabbard.
The two vehicles collided, Root said, leaving both trucks “severely damaged.”
Simpson was injured in the crash, and was transported to St. Joseph Hospital London for treatment.
Gabbard, his wife Amanda Gabbard, 26, a 9-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl, all of London, were also injured in Saturday’s crash.
The Gabbards and the 9-year-old were transported by Ambulance, Inc. of Laurel County to St. Joseph Hospital London with serious injuries. The 8-year-old girl was airlifted by Air Evac to the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
Assisting at the crash site was the East Bernstadt Volunteer Fire Department and London Laurel County Rescue Squad.
Deputy Robbie Grimes continues his investigation.
