Four people, including two kids, suffered injuries in a crash in Laurel County Monday morning.
Police say the driver of an SUV turned from KY-1535 onto KY-80, and a tractor-trailer hauling wood T-boned the SUV.
A 5-year-old child was ejected from the SUV and was flown to UK Hospital. EMS took an 8-year-old child and the driver of the SUV to a local hospital for treatment. The driver of the semi was also hospitalized as a precaution.
Police say it remains unclear what led up to the crash, and troopers continue to investigate.
As of 9:30 a.m., one lane of westbound KY-80 was still shut down. Traffic was getting by, but there was still a backup in the area.
