Tuesday accidents injure three

Two crashes on U.S. 25 South within 3 hours

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Tuesday morning had a busy beginning for law enforcement, rescue workers, and Lily volunteer firefighters, with two injury accidents on U.S. 25 South within a three-hour period.

The first accident occurred near Hunter Hills Elementary School, seven miles south of London, around 7:42 a.m. when a Dodge Caravan, driven by 29-year-old Henry Wilhoit of London, pulled onto the highway in front of an oncoming vehicle. A Ford Fusion, driven by 22-year-old Duncan Cadell, was traveling in the southbound lane and struck Wilhoit’s vehicle. Cadell and his passenger, 50-year-old Sandra S. Moses, both of Williamsburg, were taken by ambulance to Saint Joseph London for treatment of injuries.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Josh Scott investigated the accident and it is believed heavy fog may have been a contributing factor in the crash.

Agencies assisting at the scene included the London-Laurel County Rescue Squad, EMS, and Lily Volunteer Fire Department.

Since the crash occurred near Hunter Hills Elementary, staff at the school also assisted with traffic control.

The second accident happened near Jasper’s Iron and Metal, also on U.S. 25 South, five miles south of London, at 10:13 a.m. Beverly W. Philpot, 72,  of London was driving a Toyota Rav 4 when she reportedly pulled out in front of a northbound Ford Ranger pickup, driven by 64-year-old Thomas Maggard of Big Creek.

Maggard was taken to Saint Joseph London by Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County.

Deputy Josh Scott is investigating the accident. He was assisted at the scene by London-Laurel County Rescue Squad, EMS, and the Lily Volunteer Fire Department.
