Police are investigating a bad crash on US 60 at Clintonville Road that shutdown the busy highway, in front of New Hope Baptist Church in Clark County, for several hours Wednesday morning.
The chain reaction crash involved five vehicles. Authorities say one car slowed, and two others rear ended it. That's when a utility truck apparently swerved into the other lane to avoid the crash and hit an SUV head on. The SUV caught fire; another driver who had a fire extinguisher ran to the crash and put out the flames.
The driver of the SUV received critical injuries and was flown to UK Hospital. The other drivers involved only received minor injuries.
