Crash on Ky. 169 kills Nicholasville man

August 29, 2013 

A Nicholasville man died Thursday afternoon from injuries suffered in a three-vehicle collision earlier in the day, Jessamine County Chief Deputy Allen Peel said in a news release.

Thomas Hurley, 71, was pronounced dead at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

The three-vehicle collision happened at 10:45 a.m. on Ky. 169, a mile west of Nicholasville. A westbound 2009 BMW driven by Christina Kunitsa, 17, of Nicholasville crossed the center line and collided with an eastbound 1992 Chrysler driven by Hurley, Peel's news release said.

The BMW then collided with an eastbound 2012 Chrysler van driven by Ruth Collins, 35, of Nicholasville, the news release said. Two children were in the van, but they and others in that collision were not hurt.

Jessamine County Sheriff's Sgt. Larry Oliver was struck by an emergency vehicle that was backing up, but he went on his own to St. Joseph-Jessamine, where he was treated and released.
