Police have released the name of a woman who was airlifted to UK Hospital with life-threatening injures after her car was hit by a semi in Lincoln County Tuesday afternoon.
The accident happened at about noon on Highway 27 South and Cemetery Road. Police say the semi, operated by George Silvers, 70, of California was traveling southbound when a red car driven by Karen Saylor, 29, of Eubank crossed in front of it on Cemetery Road.
Salylor was listed in critical condition at UK Hospital late Tuesday afternoon. Silvers and a passenger in his semi were not seriously hurt and refused medical treatment.
The road was shut down to one lane for several hours after the accident.
