Union County Head-On Car Collision Kills One, Injures Three

Published on Feb 8, 2011 at 6:11 pm in Auto Accident.

An accident in Union County, Kentucky killed one teen and injured three on February 6, according to WFIE. The wreck occurred near Uniontown on Highway 360. It took almost three hours for first responders to clear the scene.

The wreck occurred when a pickup truck crossed over the center lane and struck a car driven by an 18-year-old male. Both the truck driver and a passenger in the truck were not wearing their seat belts, which caused them to be ejected from the vehicle. They were transported by helicopter to a local hospital where they were listed in critical condition following the fatal Kentucky car accident.

Sadly, the teenage driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. He was reportedly wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident but died from blunt force trauma. The passenger in the car had to be pried out of the vehicle and was transported by ambulance to a hospital. He was also wearing a seatbelt. Police are still investigating the Kentucky car crash.

In tragic accidents such as this one, oftentimes people wonder what made the driver veer over into the other lane. Although the investigation has not been completed in this particular case, a Kentucky automobile accident attorney understands that in many instances, the driver was either under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or was driving while distracted. Both driving practices can be deadly and can have life-altering consequences.
