Jackson County Couple Recovering From Crash

We needed all of these recent rain showers, but the wet roads prove to cause problems for drivers.

We've had reports of numerous accidents across the region.

A Jackson County couple is recovering from a Tuesday night accident after their car was hit by a state trooper who was on his way to another accident.

24-year-old Ashley Angel is in critical condition at UK Hospital.

Her husband, 26-year-old Curtis Angel is stable at Saint Joseph Hospital in London.

The couple was heading west on Highway 30 Tuesday night when Trooper First Class Parrish Baker came through the intersection on the Hal Rogers Parkway around 7:30. KSP says Baker had the red light.

“He had his emergency equipment activated, then he slowed at the intersection and that's when another vehicle pulled into the path of his police car and a collision occurred,” says Chris Lanham of Kentucky State Police.

Baker is a 19-year veteran with the Kentucky State Police. The accident remains under investigation.
