KNOX COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Kentucky State Police say six people, including two children, were taken to the hospital after a crash in Knox County on Sunday Morning.

Reportedly troopers were called at about 9:45a.m. to a crash on KY 3439 just outside of Barbourville.

Troopers believe 30-year-old Sarah Buttery of Barbourville was trying to pull out of a driveway onto KY 3439 in a 2014 silver Buick. Reportedly her car pulled into the path of a minivan being driven by 26-year-old Glenn Marion. The van reportedly hit the driver's side of the Buick.

Buttery and her passenger were taken by ambulance to Baptist Health in Corbin with non-life threatening injuries.

Troopers say Marion had a front seat passenger and two small kids in the backseat of the minivan. Reportedly Marion and a 4-year-old child were taken to the Knox County ARH Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Troopers say the front passenger and a 3-year-old were flown to UK Medical Center in Lexington for their injuries. They are listed in stable condition at this time.

The use of seat belts, child restraints, drugs and alcohol is still under investigation.
