Two airlifted to hospital after crash

Both lanes of U.S. 25 blocked following two-car wreck

LAUREL COUNTY — Two people were airlifted to the hospital after a two-car crash along U.S. 25 in Laurel County Thursday, according to Kentucky State Police Post 11 London Trooper John Pratt.

The crash happened about 11:30 a.m. as Betty Epperson, 32, of Flat Lick, drove a red 2011 Chevrolet Cruze south on U.S. 25 near Jerry’s Furniture. Epperson began to pass two other southbound vehicles and struck head-on a gray 2010 Pontiac G6 driven by Ladonna Eaton, 20, of McKee.

Epperson was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph London hospital for treatment of the injuries she suffered in the crash.

Both lanes of traffic were blocked as rescuers worked to extract Eaton and her passenger, Linda Caudill, 57, of Hudson, Fla., from their vehicle. Two Air Methods helicopters were called to airlift the women to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington.

Pratt said no drug or alcohol usage was suspected.

Pratt continues the investigation. He was assisted at the scene by the Laurel County EMS and the Lily Fire Department.

The soft whistle of a flute floated through the room as audience members listened in awe to tales of the Thunderbolt people. “This land that you’re now sitting on was that of Thunderbolt people,” said Thunderbolt descendant David Owens. Owens and Indian flute player Robert Mullinax stopped at the Laurel County Library Friday night to entertain with spoken legends, folk lore and tales of the bygone Thunderbolts. Audiences were captivated by stories passed down from the Thunderbolt of how things came to be. Tales about fire, pipes and Kentucky — just to name a few — were shared by Ownes over the course of an hour with Mullinax playing behind him.
