Woman dies in two-vehicle crash


A two-vehicle crash just before 1 a.m. Saturday morning injured four persons, one of whom died at Saint Joseph London a short time afterward.

The county’s eighth traffic fatality of the year occurred on Ky. 1956 at 12:57 a.m. when a Chevrolet pickup truck driven by 31-year-old Darrell Eversole of Arlington Green Apartments in London, dropped off the shoulder in a westbound lane and into a ditch. Eversole overcorrected the vehicle, which came back onto the roadway and hit head-on with a Chevrolet Blazer driven by 29-year-old Polly Brock of Ky. 3094 in East Bernstadt. 

Trina Angel, 40, of Hog Branch in McKee, was a passenger in Brock’s vehicle and was taken to Saint Joseph London, where she was pronounced dead a short time later. 

The two drivers - Brock and Eversole - were both flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for serious injuries. They were both listed in fair condition on Monday. 

A passenger in Eversole’s vehicle - 25-year-old James Woolum of Hawk Creek Road in London - was transported to Saint Jospeh London for possible injuries.

The investigation into the crash is being conducted by Laurel Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn Boroviak. Assisting at the scene were Deputy Tyler Morris, Kentucky State Police Trooper Mike King and Trooper Chris Saunders, Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County, Laurel County Coroner Doug Bowling, PHI Medical helicopter, Air Methods medical helicopter, and members of the Swiss Colony Volunteer Fire Department and London-Laurel Rescue Squad.
