One dies in Pike County two-vehicle collision

A two-vehicle collision that happened Tuesday, November 29 on Kentucky Route 194 near Kimper Elementary School in Pike County, Kentucky resulted in the death of one individual.

According to an interview of the Kentucky State Police with East Kentucky Broadcasting, a pickup truck had a head-on collision with a gravel truck along that expanse of road. The two people, who were ejected from both vehicles, were first taken to Pikeville Medical Center in Pikeville and were transferred to UK Hospital in Lexington. The Fayette County Coroner identified the person who eventually died because of the accident as 24-year-old Jerry Leedy, the driver of the pickup truck. Leedy appeared not to be wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident, but alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the accident.

As state police continue to investigate the accident, the attorneys at Wilson & McQueen, PLLC want to send condolences to those hurt by this accident and similar occurrences across Kentucky.
