Fatal Accident in Lexington, Kentucky Reports Driver Had Learner’s Permit-Kentucky wrongful death attorney
Date:  April 27, 2009
Location:  Lexington, Kentucky
Type:  Driver with restricted learner’s permit involved in an accident that claimed the life of another teen.
 

Monday evening in Lexington, Kentucky 17-year-old Nicolas Petit-Frere drove the car that crashed on Russell Cave Road.  Petit-Frere should not have been behind the wheel without a licensed adult in the passenger seat, Lexington police said.  One student died and three others were injured, including the driver. 

Police investigating the accident feel that Petit-Frere may have been driving faster than the posted speed limit of 55, however it could be weeks before they are able to determine how fast the car was going. Police also report Petit-Frere was driving a white Toyota Camry outbound on Russell Cave between Faulkner Avenue and Interstate 75 when it swung into the inbound lane, then went back into the outbound lane, struck a rock wall and hit a tree head-on. 

 Nathaniel Lee Stuckey, 15, was seated in the front seat at the time of the collision died in the crash. Petit-Frere was listed in critical condition Thursday at University of Kentucky Hospital. Jasmine Marks, 16, was in serious condition, and Kierra Fultz, 17, was in fair condition. A collision report said everyone was wearing a seat belt except Marks.All four students attended Bryan Station High School.  

Under Kentucky's graduated license law, permit holders must be accompanied by a licensed adult over 21. The law also prohibits permit holders from driving with more than one unrelated person under age 20 — a measure created to limit distractions for young drivers. The graduated driver's license law, passed in 2006, also requires that teens hold a permit for six months before obtaining an intermediate license. They must have a clean driving record for six months while holding the intermediate driver's license before they are issued a driver's license.
