A CAR CRASH CLAIMS THE LIFE OF A GRAYSON WOMAN ON U.S. 60
A 59-year-old Grayson, Kentucky, woman lost her life as a result of her involvement in a two-car crash on Friday, March 10, 2017. The woman had been driving her red Honda Element eastbound along U.S. 60 in Carter County when she collided with a white Toyota Highlander headed in the opposite direction.
The collision, which happened right after 6:00 p.m. in the Thunder Mountain area, left the stretch of highway 60 between Grayson and Olive Hill closed for several hours as a Kentucky State Police accident reconstruction expert conducted an investigation of the scene. The roadway was re-opened shortly after midnight on Saturday, March 11, 2017.
As for the drivers involved, the sole occupant of the Honda Element is thought to have died instantly as a result of the injuries she suffered in the car crash. The driver of the Toyota Highlander and its passenger were both transported to the hospital, one by air and the other by ambulance. State troopers were cited as saying both individuals suffered serious, yet non-life threatening injuries.
The coroner charged with recovering the victim’s body from the scene of the wreck was reported as saying that the deceased woman’s body would be sent to Frankfort for an autopsy. In doing so, the expectation is that some additional insight would be gained as to any potential contributing factors that resulted in the fatal car crash.
If you or someone you know has either suffered significant injuries, permanent disability or has lost his or her life as a result of having been involved in a motor vehicle collision, a Bowling Green, Kentucky, car crash attorney can provide advice and guidance in your legal matter.
