Report Sheds New Light On Deadly Intersection

The Department of Transportation releases some information on its investigation into a deadly Harlan County crash.

Benjamin Blanton II, 34, and Kevin Jewell, 31, died when their car went over an embankment and landed in a creek at the intersection of Kentucky 221 and 2009.

The Harlan Daily Enterprise reports, information collected from several agencies dating back to January 2000 shows the December 12th crash was the only accident at the intersection.

The information conflicts with reports from people in the area who say the intersection is the site of numerous crashes.
