A Hustonville woman and two others were injured when two vehicles collided head-on Wednesday on Ky. 52 about three miles east of Danville.
Two of unidentified victims in a maroon Nissan Sentra — a male driver and a female passenger who appeared to be in their teens — were airlifted from the scene of the crash to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington.
Both of the victims were conscious and able to speak with emergency workers but were classified as in “critical condition” due to the seriousness of the impact, said Lt. Jim Harris of the Boyle County Fire Department.
The driver of a gray Mazda minivan, identified as Rebecca Gorton of Hustonville, complained of possible injuries to her chest and was taken via ambulance to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center in Danville for treatment, said Boyle County Deputy Jody Adams.
According to witnesses, the Nissan was westbound when it attempted to pass another vehicle and pulled directly into the path of Gorton’s eastbound van, Adams said.
The crash occurred shortly after 3 p.m.
