A man and a woman died in a head-on collision on Nicholasville Road near the Fayette-Jessamine County line on Friday afternoon.
The Fayette County coroner's office identified those killed as James Quinn, 46, and Rebecca Quinn, 43, both of Lexington.
At 3:42 p.m., a truck traveling away from Lexington crossed over the center line and collided with an oncoming Kia, said Lexington police Lt. Eric Lowe. The truck then struck another vehicle. Rebecca Quinn was driving the Kia, Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn said. Three people were taken to Lexington hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
Northbound Nicholasville Road was closed for hours in the area.
