SALYERSVILLE – A total of six people were transported to area hospitals after two separate serious wrecks that happened this past weekend.
The first wreck occurred on West US 460 on the Ivy Point Hill. On rain-slickened roads a white Jeep SUV was coming from Salyersville and lost control coming out of the curve, and the driver of the other SUV tried to avoid a collision, pinning the vehicle against the guardrail. Neither were able to avoid the near-head-on collision.
The male driver of the white SUV was taken to the hospital via an ambulance and the male driver and his wife in the dark SUV went by private-owned vehicle to the hospital for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
The second wreck over last weekend happened on KY Rt. 7 and involved one car. A female driver and at least one, if not two, children, one a small child, were traveling on Rt. 7 when she lost control of the vehicle, leaving the roadway and striking a tree on the driver’s side door.
The Magoffin County Rescue Squad had to cut back the roof and remove the driver’s door in order to extricate her from the vehicle. She and the children were taken to an area hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
