Crash on Ky. 169 sends two to hospital
An head-on collision between a motorcycle and an SUV on Ky. 169 about a half mile east of U.S. 68 intersection sent both drivers to the hospital Wednesday morning. The driver of the motorcycle remained in the hospital as of Friday morning.
The accident happened around 7:45 when Travis Greer, 21, of Versailles, drove his motorcycle from the eastbound lane into the westbound lane, where it struck an SUV driven by Darlene Dennis, 55, of Nicholasville, Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office chief deputy Allen Peel said.
The impact from the accident caused the SUV to roll over onto its top, trapping Dennis inside the vehicle. Jessamine County Fire District members extricated her from the vehicle, and she was transported to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with minor injuries.
Greer was taken to UK Hospital with serious, life threatening injuries, including a significant amount of blood loss and injuries to his pelvis, Greer's mother Melissa Dawn said. Greer was still in the hospital undergoing surgery Friday morning.
