GEORGETOWN — A woman who was a passenger in a head-on collision Tuesday that killed three people, including her husband and son, then went into labor and delivered a healthy baby.
Scott County Coroner John Goble said the woman, whom he could not identify, was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with the newborn and another child, a daughter. They did not have life-threatening injuries.
The crash happened at 3:10 p.m. on Ky. 227 between Stamping Ground and Georgetown.
Scott County Sheriff's Deputy Jeb Barnes said a Ford Explorer carrying Trevor Spencer, 22, of Georgetown, and his wife and two children, collided head-on with a Ford Mustang driven by a man later identified as Corey Wilcoxen, 29, of Georgetown. Wilcoxen's daughter was a passenger in the Mustang.
Barnes said one of the vehicles crossed the center line on a curve in the road, and the two vehicles collided head-on.
Spencer, his 3-year-old son, Skylar Spencer, and Wilcoxen died at the scene. Wilcoxen's daughter also was taken to UK, but her injuries were not thought to be life-threatening, Goble said.
Police said weather apparently was a factor. A tornado is thought to have touched down a few miles away in Stamping Ground, Barnes said.
A woman was killed and a man was injured in another crash on the same road Monday night.
