ROCKCASTLE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Officials said one person was killed and several others were hurt in a serious wreck on U.S. 25 in Rockcastle County.

Rockcastle County EMA Director David Colson said a car crashed into a house near the Conway Community on Saturday night sometime shortly before 9:00.

A KSP spokesperson told LEX 18's Eleanor Buckley that one person has died and two others were airlifted to the hospital. Reportedly a person who was inside the home went to the hospital with minor injuries.

Troopers said law enforcement officers tried to pull the car over, but the vehicle sped off and crashed, rolling several times before hitting the house.

We're told drugs and alcohol are believed to be factors in the crash.
