The Kentucky Highway Patrol says one person is dead after a head-on collision on KY-1447 in Louisville, Kentucky.
The Patrol spokesman stated that the accident happened on the entrance of KY-1447, near Murphy Lane. A 41-year-old woman driving a 2010 Toyota Camry failed to maintain control of her car along Murphy Ln, a trooper said.
This failure to gain control of the car reportedly led it to enter an oncoming lane where the crash happened. It was therefore reported that the Camry collided head-on with a Volvo coming into Murphy Ln, from Westport Road (KY-1447).
The green Volvo was driven by a 29-year-old man, the spokesman reported. It was also reported that there were 2 passengers in the Volvo. According to the report, the Camry was traveling at a high rate of speed and struck the Volvo which forced it onto the shoulder of the road.
Upon arrival at the site of the crash, EMS had to remove the driver of the Volvo and the passengers, police said. It was also reported that the two occupants of the Volvo, including the driver were critically injured. These three victims were transported to U of Florida hospital by helicopter.
The driver of the Camry sustained injuries to his head and neck. Authorities are investigating this crash.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, comments on this crash. “It’s tragic whenever we see this many people injured in a car accident. It appears that driving above the posted speed limit may have contributed to the cause of this accident. We hope that everyone involved in this accident gets the proper medical attention and has a speedy recovery.”
