Violent Lexington Car Crash Sends Three to the Hospital

Posted on May 17, 2012
On May 1, 2012, a violent accident in Lexington took place on New Circle Road, between Old Frankfort Pike and Leestown Road. Police stated that the accident happened around 2:00 PM and involved two passenger vehicles and one tanker truck, sending three people to the hospital with injuries. 

After an initial investigation, police indicated that a woman driving a gold Buick LeSabre was traveling at a high rate of speed on the inner loop when she traveled across the median and crossed into the outer loop, hitting a tanker truck. The car spun out of control and hit a silver Toyota Camry.

Witnesses told police that they had seen the car traveling fast and weaving in and out of traffic prior to the accident. Ines Badinga, of Lexington, the driver of the gold car, was injured after her car went airborne and landed on its roof. She was listed in serious condition at the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital. 

The driver of the tanker truck was not injured. However, the two occupants in the silver passenger vehicle had to be cut out of their car by firefighters and transported to UK Hospital in critical condition. David Cavaliere, the driver, of Richmond, was treated and released, and his passenger, Erik J. Spurling, was listed in fair condition.

The crash caused police to close this section of the inner and outer loops of New Circle for about three hours. 

Fayette County Commonwealth’s Attorney Ray Larson visited the accident scene in case criminal charges were filed against the driver who caused the crash. As of now, police do not believe alcohol or drugs were involved; however, they are still investigating this wreck.

Our Lexington accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Schachter, Hendy, & Johnson would like to wish all involved and injured in this accident a full and fast recovery.
