MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A driver has been cited after a crash that hurt five people, including two deputy sheriffs in Madison County.
The deputies were speaking with someone on the shoulder of I-75 between the Richmond exits on Friday morning when a white SUV veered over and hit one of the cruisers.
Both deputies, along with three people in that SUV, were taken to the hospital.
As bad as the crash looked, all the injuries were considered non-life threatening.
