Crash near Flaherty, Kentucky kills one

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One person has died and four people are hurt after a crash involving a Meade County EMS vehicle near Flaherty, Kentucky.

Meade County Sheriff Butch Kerrick said it happened on Ky. 313 at Ky. 333, south of U.S. 60 at about 7 p.m. Thursday.

Kerrick said the crash occurred when the driver of one vehicle apparently ran a stop sign and struck a Meade County EMS ambulance. The collision forced the ambulance to roll on its side and also involved a third vehicle.

The driver of the first vehicle died at the scene, Kerrick said. Medics took a baby from that vehicle to Kosair Children's Hospital for treatment; they also drove a paramedic and an EMT to University of Louisville Hospital for treatment of their injuries. The driver of the third vehicle was taken to Hardin Memorial Hospital at Elizabethtown for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, Kerrick said.

Kentucky State Police troopers are investigating the crash. Ky. 313 was expected to be closed for several hours Thursday night.

Kerrick said he was not aware if the ambulance was on an emergency run at the time of the crash.
