One Dead, Five Injured in Serious Kentucky CrashPosted on Mar 13, 2012
State Police said the car crash occurred at the intersection of Sacker Road, which is approximately seven miles north of Manchester. Officials indicated that five people were hospitalized with injuries and one person was killed when multiple cars collided.
Kathy Brumley, 42, a driver of a 1998 Saturn, was driving northbound on US Highway 421 when she crossed over the center line. She collided with a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire, driven by 24-year-old Daniel Henson, of Manchester. Upon impact, the Saturn hit another car. The third car, a 2003 Chevrolet Tracker, was driven by Callie Gilbert, 34, of Manchester. Then, the Saturn continued on to hit an additional car – a 1998 GMC Jimmy that was parked on the side of the road.
Daniel Henson was injured in the crash and was flown to the University of Tennessee Medical Center. He is now listed in stable condition. He was traveling with another person who was also injured in the crash. Domonica Howard, 21, his passenger, was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for treatment of her injuries. She is also listed in stable condition.
Callie Gilbert and her passenger were also transported to area hospitals for their injuries, but they are now listed in stable condition.
However, Kathy Brumley, the Saturn driver, suffered catastrophic injuries and was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington. She was pronounced dead by the Fayette County Coroner’s Office around 1:00 AM. Her passenger Curtis Burkhart, 53, of Manchester, was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center and is in critical condition.
