Official: Collision Strong Enough to Rip Roof off Car
One man suffered serious injuries to his leg and three other individuals required treatment for various injuries following a Boone County, Kentucky, car crash that officials say was caused by a wrong-way driver. According to Fox 19, the man who suffered leg injuries had to be extracted from his truck after the collision caused it to catch fire, trapping him inside. The wrong-way driver also had to be extricated from her vehicle by first responders.
The names, ages and nature of the injuries suffered by the other three parties are not yet known. Additional crash details reveal that the female driver was traveling in a southbound direction on Kentucky 237’s northbound lanes when she struck two other vehicles. The collision impact was strong enough to completely detach the roof of one of the vehicles involved in the accident, the website reported.
