Louisville Metro Police reported an accident involving a semi-truck and a minivan, leading to severe injuries on New Cut Road.
The accident reportedly happened along New Cut Road, near Iroquois Park. The 46-year-old man driving the minivan veered out of his lane, police stated. Subsequently, the minivan collided head-on with a semi-truck; the truck was operated by a 34-year-old man, police said.
Consequently, the man and the two passengers in the minivan sustained severe injuries. The 27-year-old man seated beside the driver was immobile after the crash. Emergency crew arrived at the site of the accident shortly thereafter. The crew reported that the victims had severe injuries; some were to the head, shoulder and leg.
Meanwhile, the semi-truck driver reportedly sustained minor injuries. The crew treated the truck driver at the site of the crash. According to police, the impact of the collision was reduced because the semi-truck was not traveling at a high speed.
The cause of the crash is still being investigated.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, commented on the crash. “This was a serious accident in the Louisville area that resulted in tragic consequences.
