One injured in four-vehicle crash
LANCASTER - An accident Thursday that involved four vehicles sent one person to the hospital.
Connie Baker of Junction City, was riding in a 2000 Saturn on U.S. 27 South in Garrard County when the vehicle was involved in a chain-reaction collision with three other vehicles.
According to state police, Brian Baker, 31, of Stanford, failed to stop for the three vehicles sitting ahead of him in traffic, running the Ford F-150 pickup into the back of a Dodge Ram pickup. The Dodge then struck the Saturn, which in turn rear-ended an Audi. All drivers were wearing seat belts, with vehicle damage ranging from minor to severe.
Connie Baker was transported to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center by EMS, where she was treated and released.
The accident is under investigation by Trooper Tackett Wilson.
