One Dead, One Injured Following Collision

Posted: Updated:

UNION, Ky. (LEX 18)-- A two vehicle collision claimed the life of one and sent another to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

It happened around 10:50 p.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 42 near the 10600 block, just north of Hicks Pike.

Officials say a Pontiac Grand Am, operated by Bennett Allen III, 22, of Union, was traveling westbound on HWY 42 and for an unknown reason at this time crossed the center line into the opposing eastbound lane of traffic. Allen then struck a Jeep Compass, operated by Teresa Taylor-Lanigan, 43, of Union, who was traveling eastbound on HWY 42. After striking Taylor-Lanigan’s vehicle, Allen’s vehicle was redirected and exited the roadway on the southbound side of the road.

Allen was pronounced deceased at the scene by Union Fire/EMS. Taylor-Langian was transported St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Florence with non-life threatening injuries.

No charges have been filed at this time. Both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the collision. Speed and rain/wet roadways are suspected factors in the collision.
