LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A head on collision on Ky. 192 Tuesday morning killed one and sent another to the hospital with serious injuries.  

Albert Stillings was heading west as Bobby Evans was heading east around a sharp curve near Cold Hill Elementary School. The two allegedly lost control of their vehicles and collided head on. Stillings was driving a black Jeep while Evans was driving a white Chrysler 300.

Evans was flown by Air Methods to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for serious injuries after being pulled from his vehicle by the London-Laurel Rescue Squad and the Laurel County Volunteer Fire Department using the jaws of life and Stillings was also flown to UK where he later died of his injuries.

The Laurel County Sheriff's Department is continuing the accident investigation.
