Three people, including two EKU students, were injured in a Boyle County crash Wednesday afternoon that shut down a main highway.
The Sheriff's Department said a red car and minivan hit head-on around 2:50 p.m. on Highway 52, near Chrisman Lane.
The car's driver and passenger were flown to UK hospital. Deputies said the male driver was pinned in the crash and had to be cut from the wreckage. We're told he suffered multiple broken bones and is in critical condition. The female passenger suffered numerous internal injuries that officials say may be life-threatening. The van's driver was taken to a local hospital to be checked out for chest pain.
Deputies haven't released the victims' names but do say the two people in the car are students at Eastern Kentucky University.
