Two surviving triplets still in critical condition after Boyle crash

The survivors of Tuesday's two-vehicle crash in Boyle County remained hospitalized at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, a spokeswoman said.

Chase and Conner Padgett, both 7, remained in critical condition on Wednesday, the spokeswoman said. Their mother, Stefanie Padgett, 38, of Junction City, was listed in fair condition.

Madelyn Oblisk, a daughter born April 22 to Stefanie Padgett, also was listed in fair condition.

Another girl, McKenna Padgett, 7, died Tuesday after the crash on Ky. 34 in Danville, police said. She and the 7-year-old boys were triplets, children of Stefanie Padgett.

Stefanie Padgett was driving eastbound when she lost control of the van she was driving. It went into the westbound lane, colliding with another van. The driver of that van was treated at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center.
