LONDON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say four people were injured in a six-car pileup on New Year's Day in southeastern Kentucky.
Trooper Don Trosper says the wrecks happened about 2:40 p.m. at the 21-mile marker on Interstate 75, about four miles south of Corbin.
Trosper says troopers found that a white and tan 2004 Freightliner motor home driven by 85-year-old Marvin Jasper of Lebanon, Ohio, hit several vehicles that had slowed or stopped due to a separate non-injury crash in the area. Jasper and his passenger, 80-year-old Ann Jasper, were not hurt.
Trosper says the injured were 46-year-old Brad Rupp of Archbold, Ohio, who was taken to the University of Kentucky Medical Center; 80-year-old Donald Stanley of Woodstock, Ohio, who was taken to Baptist Regional Medical Center in Corbin, and his passenger, 71-year-old Eleanor Millard of Woodstock, Ohio, who was taken to UK Medical Center; 72-year-old Sharon Newcom of Dade City, Fla., who was taken to Baptist Regional Medical Center in Corbin.
Three other people involved in the wreck were not injured.
