LIBERTY - Six Casey County High School students were injured Wednesday when a county dump truck rammed into a line of traffic that had backed up after students were released for their holiday break.
The accident occurred at 12:09 p.m. on Ky. 70 about a mile from the school, said Liberty Police Chief Ron Whited.
County employee Bruce Poff, who was driving the dump truck, rear-ended one car carrying four students. The car was pushed into another car with two students on board, Whited said.
Jeremy Wilson, 17, of Liberty was driving the 1997 Chevy Blazer that was first struck. Wilson and passengers Joe Shoaf, 18, Kayla Buis, 17, and Brittany Kennedy, 17, all of Liberty, were injured.
