Louisville Crash Sends Man to Hospital With Life-Threatening InjuriesPosted on Aug 10, 2011
Teresa Duff, 39, was driving southbound on National Turnpike when she ran a red light and plowed into another car. Witnesses advised police that they saw Duff run the red light and crash into a vehicle that was exiting off of the Gene Snyder Freeway.
When emergency crews arrived on scene, they had to extract the man from his vehicle and transport him to an area hospital for medical care. He was unconscious and on a ventilator as of Tuesday.
Louisville police said that Duff admitted to drinking vodka before driving. They noticed her bloodshot eyes and slurred speech and had her take a breathalyzer test at the crash site. Police indicated that she allegedly blew a .295; they charged her with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs, assault, not having registration plates, and failure to maintain proper insurance.
There is no word on the identity of the man injured in this Kentucky accident or his current medical condition at this time.
Schachter, Hendy, & Johnson would like to wish the injured man a complete and fast recovery.
