There have been many Kentucky semi-truck crashes during the month of September. Sadly, some of these truck accidents have resulted in serious injuries and fatalities for those involved.
These Kentucky truck accidents include:
- September 30, 2012 – A car and dump truck accident in Shelby County, KY, happened around 10:30 PM. Bryant A. Bloss, a Newburgh orthopedic surgeon and driver of the Toyota Prius that was involved in this accident, was killed when his car struck the dump truck and went off the road, striking several trees. Police said the Prius crashed into the back of the slower-moving dump truck, as they were both traveling eastbound on I-64.
- September 26, 2012 – A Madison County truck crash shut down northbound lanes of I-75 near mile marker 84, between Berea and Richmond. The crash took place around 8:30 PM and involved a car and a semi. Police said the car ended up underneath the truck’s trailer. The driver of the car was airlifted to a hospital for medical care of her serious injuries.
- September 23, 2012 – A fatal tractor-trailer crash in Kentucky occurred around 10:14 PM on Interstate 24 near Cadiz. Two people were killed after their truck ran off the road and into trees. Kentucky State Police weren’t sure if the two men inside the truck were wearing their seat belts.
- September 8, 2012 – Three truck drivers were hurt, one in critical condition, after a Hart County truck accident caused a four-truck, chain-reaction collision. Kentucky State Police indicated that the crash occurred on Interstate 65 near mile marker 60 between Horse Cave and Munfordville around 5:00 AM. A truck driver failed to slow for stopped traffic from a previous collision and slammed into another tractor trailer, which set off a chain reaction.
