Police have released the names of the two people killed in an accident in Estill County Sunday.
The crash happened just after noon on Kentucky 52 near Irvine. Police say 18-year-old Shelby Harrison was driving east on Richmond Road and when she swerved to avoid another car then over-corrected and crossed into the west bound lane. She crashed into an SUV driven by 50-year-old William Neal. Neal was pronounced dead at the scene.
Neal's passenger, Ronald Whitaker, died after being taken to the hospital.
"Not long after that we got a phone call from Marcum Wallace that the second person had died at the hospital," says Sgt. Harvey Baxter with Kentucky State Police.
Harrison was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and her passenger walked away uninjured. All four people involved were wearing seatbelts.
