On Monday evening, shortly after 9 p.m., two drivers were involved in a fatal accident. One of the driver's names was Joe Carr and the other driver was David Thompson. The accident occurred on KY 52 near Waco. Thompson's car left his side of the road and spinning him into the wrong lane. Thompson’s car spun around into the path of Carr’s vehicle where they crashed head on. According to reports, both cars overturned several times before coming to a stop upside down on the side of the road. The report also indicated that Carr was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from his car. He died at the scene.

On Tuesday morning also on KY 52, near Richmond, KY, was the site of the second fatality. This fatal accident occurred around 8:00 a.m. near Concord. The collision involved a passenger vehicle and a pick up truck which killed 20-year-old Kayla Miller and injured the driver of the other vehicle. The other driver, whose identity has not been released, was transported to University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.

Kentucky State Police are investigating both fatalities and don't believe drugs or alcohol were involved in either accident.

We'd like to send our sympathies to the victims and their loved ones in these two tragedies.

If you're ever involved in a car accident, here are a few guidelines to follow:

  • First, contact the police. They will file a report, take some picture of the accident scene and help gather information from all parties.
  • Then, go see a doctor as soon as you can to make sure you are not injured. Even if you feel fine, it's very important not to wait to get examined by a doctor.
  • It is also a good idea to contact a personal injury attorney. The attorney will help you through your case, so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

No one wants to be involved in an accident, so let's make sure to avoid distractions, always keep our eyes on the road, always wear your seat belt and not drink and drive. These are just a few ways to help protect yourself on the road, but if we follow these, then we will help decrease car accidents.
