Two injured in Lincoln collision
STANFORD - A tractor-trailer attempting to turn around was struck by a vehicle driven by a Stanford man Wednesday afternoon, sending one driver to the hospital.
State police said Steven B. Turpin, 25, of Stanford, was westbound on U.S. 150 behind the semitrailer when the truck driver tried to turn around at the Grist Mill crossover two miles west of Stanford. As the 2000 Kenworth semi turned across the roadway, it was struck by Turpin's 1992 Ford Tempo.
The truck driver, Robert Smith, 54, of Brantford, Ontario, was not injured.
Turpin and his passenger, Robert Turpin, 23, were not wearing seat belts at the time of the accident and suffered head injuries. Steven Turpin was transported to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center by Stanford Emergency Medical Service. He was charged with no insurance.
