PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Multiple agencies responded after a head-on crash Saturday night, according to the Somerset Pulaski County Special Response Facebook page.

When the teams reached the site of the crash, they said a truck was engulfed in flames.

While the post said the person in the truck was able to get out, a victim in the other car was trapped.

It continued to say that both victims were transported to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

"This was a highly complex scene with multiple hazards, a situation like this shows the professionalism we have in First Responders," the post read.
