One killed, one injured in Scott County wreck

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - One person is dead and another in the hospital after a late night car accident on I-64 West near the Scott-Woodford County line.

The Scott County Coroner says two cars heading in separate directions hit head-on near mile marker 68 just after 11:00 Friday night.

The coroner says the man who is now in critical condition was traveling eastbound when he lost control of his car and ended up jumping the median, causing him to crash head on with another car heading west.

The man in the other car died from blunt force trauma and he has been identified as 31-year-old, Dallas Easton, of Louisville.

The coroner doesn't suspect that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision but ultimately, that will be determined after the autopsy is completed.

Georgetown Police are waiting to release the name of the man who remains in critical condition.
