Rock Slide Causes Multiple-Car Crash in Northern Kentucky

Posted on Nov 03, 2011
On Tuesday, October 4, 2011, a car crash in northern Garrard County took place on U.S. 27, as a nurse at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital was commuting home to Stanford from Lexington. Authorities said that it appeared that a large rock had fallen onto the highway, and a car crashed into it.

Nancy Miracle, 46, was driving a Mitsubishi Spyder in the southbound lane of U.S. 27, near the Camp Nelson bridge over the Kentucky River, when she smashed into the large rock that had fallen into the right lane. The car started smoking when it crashed, but it did not catch on fire.

Miracle's airbags deployed, but amazingly, she did not suffer any broken bones. However, she is very sore and is complaining of bruising, soft-tissue injuries, and neck and back injuries.

Right after she collided into the rock, a pickup truck rear-ended her car. Because the accident happened so fast, Miracle wasn't sure if there was a third vehicle involved in this Kentucky accident or not. She did tell Kentucky.com that another person involved in the crash suffered a broken arm.

She received medical treatment at UK and was released the next day. She just wants the road to be safe for her commute and for other drivers. The state Transportation Cabinet has asked the geotechnical branch to inspect the rock slide site following this accident.

Schachter, Hendy, & Johnson would like to wish everyone involved and injured in this northern Kentucky car crash a full and quick recovery.
