Three car accident kills one
Kentucky State Police have reported that an individual lost his life in a three-vehicle accident that occurred along Interstate 75 in Laurel County, Kentucky at around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, November 1st.
According to preliminary investigations, a commercial vehicle was headed south near mile marker 46 along I-75 when it was stuck from the rear by a Saturn.
After the driver of the commercial vehicle stepped out to check on the other car, a third vehicle crashed into the Saturn, which was partially obstructing the road. This second collision sent the Saturn into the embankment and caused the third vehicle to strike the driver of the commercial vehicle, a man later identified as 46-year-old Nicholasville resident Zhurko Pavel.
Pavel was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in London where he succumbed to his injuries.
The driver of the Saturn, who is yet to be identified publicly by state police, was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington where he is being treated for his injuries. His female passenger was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where she was cared for and released immediately after treatment.
