Boyle teen injured in auto crash
LANCASTER - A Boyle County teen-ager remains in serious condition today following a two-car accident in Garrard County.
Lauren Maryon, 16, who will be a senior at Boyle County High School, was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center after the crash, which occurred about 4 p.m. Monday on Ky. 52 five miles west of Lancaster. She was listed in serious condition this morning, a hospital spokeswoman said.
Garrard County Sheriff Ronnie Wardrip said Maryon was driving toward Danville from Lancaster when she lost control of her 1995 Toyota in a curve. Maryon apparently overcorrected, bounced off a guardrail and spun into the path of a 2003 Ford driven by Debra Craddock of Lancaster, Wardrip said.
"When she hit that guardrail, she really lost control," Wardrip said. "She was going backward in the eastbound lane."
Craddock, 48, was wearing a seat belt and was not injured in the crash, the sheriff said. Maryon was not wearing a seat belt, he said.
