Two people were injured Tuesday night when a large boulder bounded into the southbound lanes of U.S. 27 in Garrard County near the bridge spanning the Kentucky River.
One car crashed directly into the boulder and was then rear-ended by a pickup truck. The drivers of both vehicles were transported to hospitals for treatment, said Garrard County Deputy James Napier.
The conditions of the drivers, whose names were not available, were not known this morning, Napier said.
Deputies Jeremy Smith and Ronald Lamb, who responded to the crash, worked the overnight shift and had not yet reported to work this morning, Napier said.
The incident occurred about 8:30 p.m.
