Police: Crash nearly ‘dismantles’ vehicles, injures three in Lexington
A woman died Wednesday after a three-vehicle crash on Georgetown Road in Lexington that sent three to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.
Kristian Pescor, 33, was taken by ambulance to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital after the crash, which occurred just before 1 p.m. Wednesday on Georgetown Road. She died about three hours later of blunt-force trauma, according to the Fayette County Coroner’s Office.
Witnesses told police that two vehicles were traveling in opposite directions when one swerved into the other lane, causing a head-on collision, Lexington police Sgt. Donnell Gordon said Wednesday.
Georgetown Road between Kearney Road and Ironworks Pike was closed from 12:50 p.m. to 4:25 p.m. Wednesday as responders worked to rescue patients and investigate the scene.
In August, two people were killed when a flat-bed trailer detached from a commercial vehicle and collided with two cars on the same stretch of road.
