Teen injured in crash

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — It was a harrowing and hazardous ride for a Laurel teen on Monday afternoon after he wrecked his pickup truck on Langford Road.

The teen was transported to Saint Joseph London for possible head and neck injuries after the crash.

The accident occurred around 2:27 p.m., seven miles west of London, after the driver reportedly had an argument with his girlfriend and was traveling at a high rate of speed on Langford Road. He ran off the road and struck a fence, but kept on traveling out of control for a short distance before dropping into a ditch. The vehicle traveled another 75 feet before hitting a tree, then came back out of the ditch, crossed the road and landed in the other ditch.

The accident is being investigated by Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Larry Parrott, who was assisted at the scene by members of the Keavy Volunteer Fire Department, EMS, Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County, and London-Laurel Rescue Squad.
