One juvenile died and four others were hospitalized after an early morning crash on Ky. 52 in Boyle County.
State police said the juvenile who was driving the 2003 Chevrolet Impala did not have a license. None of the occupants of the vehicle were wearing seat belts, they said.
Boyle County Coroner Don Hamner identified the teen who died as Douglas Hadding, 16. He was a passenger and was partially ejected, police said.
The conditions of the four who were taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital were not known.
The crash happened just before 5 a.m. Saturday, when the passenger side of the eastbound Impala dropped off the right side of the road. The car hit a concrete bridge barrier and came to a stop in the middle of the road, state police said.
State police told WKYT-TV that alcohol is suspected as a factor.
A minor secondary crash occurred when a westbound truck pulling a boat on a trailer came upon the crash and slowed down but was unable to come to a full stop or steer around the disabled vehicle.
Ky. 52, also known as Lancaster Road, was closed for several hours while officials investigated.
