Posted:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A 5-year-old girl and lone survivor of a head-on collision that killed four people remained in serious condition two days after the wreck.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Haylee Moreland was taken to the University of Kentucky Medical Center after the wreck on Friday that killed her father, mother, sister and another man.

She remained hospitalized Sunday.

Funeral arrangements are expected to be announced Monday. Kentucky State Police say the crash happened at about 3:40 p.m. CST Friday on Ky. 90 about 6 miles west of Albany.

Troopers said 54-year-old Ricky Brinkley of Bowling Green, was driving east on Ky. 90 in a 2000 Chevy pickup when he tried to pass another eastbound vehicle and collided head-on with a westbound Plymouth van carrying the family of 36-year-old David Moreland.

Moreland of Albany, was pronounced dead at the crash scene. His wife, Amanda Moreland, 25, and one of their daughters, McKenzie Moreland, 7, were pronounced dead at Clinton County Hospital.

State police have said they think alcohol was involved in the wreck, but have provided no specifics. Police say no one in either vehicle was wearing a seatbelt.
