Teen Killed In T-Bone Crash

A 19-year old is dead after a crash in Southern Kentucky.

Several emergency units in Somerset were called to the intersection of Kentucky 914 and Barret Drive around nine Monday night.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office says Jacob Hail's Pontiac was struck by truck heading southbound on KY 914, as Hail attempted to make a turn.

The driver of the pick-up, 36-year old David Hughes, was taken to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital.

Hail had to be cut from the vehicle, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

    How can anyone comment like Rodney turning this poor man's death into a spectacle of religious leanings? What if I took the first post and said something like "It's sad that this kid is dead but Richard Dawkins wants you all to know that there is no god and this kid isn't in hell at the very least." That would be mean... but alas, there is no god. There.
