Louisville Car Accidents are Blamed on SnowPosted on Feb 22, 2010
The first wreck occurred during the morning on Interstate 64 West near the Hurstbourne Parkway ramp. According to officials, a sport utility vehicle (SUV) was driving up the ramp and struck a semi after spinning out of control. The force of the impact caused the SUV to go down the embankment. The truck collided with another vehicle on the ramp while a fourth vehicle went off the road in an attempt to avoid the semi.
At approximately 10:30, that same morning, a second accident involving three vehicles happened at Seventh Street Road and Tennessee Avenue. Rescue crews transported three victims, including an infant, to a nearby hospital where they were treated for injuries sustained in the crash. Their identities and the extent of their injuries were no made known.
Both Louisville accidents are still under investigation by local authorities. Road conditions are thought to be contributing factors in both wrecks.
“Winter provides new challenges and responsibilities to the public and the Kentucky State Police,” said Rodney Brewer, Kentucky State Police Commissioner.
Out thoughts go out to all of those that were involved in these two Kentucky wrecks.
