According to local police, the driver of a tractor-trailer was making a left turn out of the University of Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station Research Farm onto Georgetown Street when a speeding car attempted to avoid the vehicle. The driver lost control of the car and hit two signs and slammed into a rock wall near the intersection.
Rescue crews transported the 23-year-old driver and passenger to University of Kentucky Hospital where they were treated for injuries sustained in the accident. One of the victims has been listed in critical condition while the other was in serious condition.
The Lexington accident is still under investigation by local authorities. Police have not released the names of the victims; however, police have indicated that neither of occupants was wearing seat belts at the time of the fatal wreck.
This is an unfortunate accident and we wish both victims a speedy recovery during this difficult time.
