LONDON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A crash in Laurel County on Friday morning claimed the lives of three people.
The accident occurred around 7:24 a.m. at the intersection Kentucky Highway 1535 and Kentucky Highway 80.
Two vehicles were involved in the collision: a truck and a car.
Officials tell LEX 18 that the car pulled into the path of the oncoming truck. The sun is believed to have impaired the driver's vision, causing the collision.
Those killed all were in the same vehicle. The driver was 72-year-old Gloria Faye Engle. She was in the car with her great-grandchildren, an 8-year-old girl and 14-year-old boy. All three were pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the truck was 30-year-old Chad Brent Sturgill. He was not injured.
