Two airlifted to U.K. hospital

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —



A one-vehicle crash Wednesday around 4 p.m. on Ky. 830 sent two passengers to the University of Kentucky Medical Center with serious injuries.

 The driver of a dark gray Explorer, Arnold D. Smith, 49, and a passenger in the front seat, Russell Smith, 42, were not injured. Russell’s brother, Lansford Smith, 44,  and his girlfriend, Rosemary Senters, 46, both passengers in the back seat were airlifted to U.K. from the scene. Lansford Smith and Senters had to be extricated from the vehicle.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Ernest Rudder said the group was from Manchester and were heading to Corbin for an appointment when the right front wheel locked up and threw the SUV off the road. The vehicle turned in the opposite direction, went through an electric fence, rolled over on its top, and landed next to a utility pole in a field.

Assisting at the scene were Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County and the London-Laurel County Rescue Squad.
