Motorist flees scene after accident
CRAB ORCHARD - The driver of a pickup truck fled the scene after a two-vehicle accident late Saturday that left the other driver with a minor injury on Ky. 618 six miles south of Crab Orchard, state police said.
Kimberly Dargavell, 37, of Richmond, was headed east about 10:30 p.m. when her 1996 Chevrolet pickup was struck on the driver's side by a westbound older model blue Ford pickup. The impact caused the rearview mirror on the driver's side door of the Dargavell truck to shatter, and shards of glass hit Dargavell in the forehead.
Dargavell was treated at the scene by members of Stanford Emergency Medical Services.
Trooper Eric C. Taylor investigated the accident.
The blue pickup that left the scene was described as a 1980 to 1985 model. Anyone with information about the vehicle or its driver may call the Kentucky State Police post at Richmond at (859) 623-2404.
