One killed, four injured in Montgomery crash

One person died and four were injured in a crash in Montgomery County Sunday afternoon.

A 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier was southbound on Ky. 213 in Jeffersonville when the driver lost control, left the right side of the road, then overcorrected and went into the northbound lane, hitting a 2005 Dodge Neon just before 5 p.m., said Sgt. Ralph Charles of the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department.

The passenger in the Neon, Christina Smith, 35, of Jeffersonville, was pronounced dead at the scene. She was not wearing a seat belt, Charles said.

Her husband, Rocky Smith, 37, who had been driving, was taken to the University of Kentucky and was in fair condition Monday evening.

Smith is a soldier stationed at Fort Knox and is believed to have been wearing his seat belt, Charles said.

The three occupants of the Cavalier were also taken to UK.

They are Jefferey Burton II, 27, of Clay City, who was driving; Cynthia Hudson, 20, of Jeffersonville; and Anthony Hudson, 18, of Clay City. None of them were wearing seat belts, Charles said.

Cynthia Hudson and Anthony Hudson were both in fair condition at UK Monday evening. Burton was discharged after receiving treatment in the emergency room.
