An 8-year-old boy has died after a crash on Monday that also injured six other children.
The Fayette County coroner’s office said Jacob Sturgill died at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital Thursday afternoon as a result of multiple blunt force injuries.
He was one of seven children injured in a crash on U.S. 25 North about 3 miles north of London at about 9 a.m. Monday.
The Laurel County sheriff’s office said Teresa Sturgill, 29, of East Bernstadt, was driving a Chervolet Venture south on U.S. 25 when she made a left turn into the path of a northbound Toyota Highlander at the intersection with Ky. 3094.
Sturgill and the five children in the vehicle with her, including Jacob, were injured. A 6-year-old girl was taken to UK with critical injuries, and a 4-year-old boy was taken to UK with serious injuries, the sheriff’s office said.
The sheriff’s office said Sturgill, a 16-month-old girl and 10-year-old boy all had “moderate injuries” and were taken to St. Joseph Hospital London.
The driver of the Highlander, Rachel O’Neal, 42, of London, and 11-year-old and 14-year-old boys who were in the vehicle with her, were all taken to St. Joseph London with “moderate injuries,” according to the sheriff’s office.
