Two killed, six injured in Woodford County Crash

A violent crash leaves two people dead, and sends six others to the hospital.

Police say a 1997 Chevy S-10 truck and a Ford Expedition SUV hit head-on Sunday night along Shannon Run Road in Woodford County, not far from Versailles. The Expedition was carrying five women on their way to play bingo.

The Expedition overturned and came to rest on its roof. Police say the truck spun around in the road.

The man driving the truck and one of his passengers were pronounced dead at the scene.

His other passenger, and all five people inside the Expedition were injured.

One of the injured was airlifted to UK hospital, while the others were taken by ambulance. Monday morning police said they expected all the injured victims to survive.

The other driver involved in the crash, Cindy Gaines, was last listed in good condition at the hospital. So far, no other names have been released.

Police believe the driver of the truck may have been drinking. They say they found empty beer cans in the truck.
