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.
The Lexington County Police Department arrested 39-year-old Benjamin Scott Brewser, a truck driver who was allegedly involved in a multi-vehicular accident that caused the death of six individuals near a construction site in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on charges of six counts of vehicular homicide.
In an interview with the Lexington Herald-Leader, Sergeant Joe Anderson said Brewser damaged a police vehicle after he was arrested by kicking it. Brewser was taken into custody with another person who the police have yet to identify publicly.
According to federal investigators, Brewer had been on the road for 15 consecutive hours before he caused the June 25, 2015 multi-vehicle crash along Interstate 75, resulting in the deaths of six people and the injuries of at least six others.
