Two vehicles blocked the westbound lanes of Russell Dyche Memorial Highway after a crash that sent one man for medical treatment.

The accident took place around 10:21 p.m. near the intersection of Ky. 1535 and Russell Dyche Highway (Ky. 80), five miles west of London, on Thursday.

Information from the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office indicates a Ford Ranger pickup, driven by Kenneth E. Durham of East Bernstadt, pulled out from Ky. 1535 into the path of a Chrysler PT Cruiser, driven by Homer H. Bailey of Greenburg, Ky. Bailey was traveling west on Russell Dyche Highway at the time of the collision.

The impact of the crash caused the Ford Ranger to overturn onto its side, causing injury to Durham, who was transported to Saint Joseph London by Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County.
