One person is dead after a violent crash in McCreary County.

It happened Tuesday after 11 a.m. on Highway 92 in the Pine Knot community.

Kentucky State Police say Benjamin Strunk, 23, was racing another car heading west on Ky. 92 when he collided with a third car, driven by Steven Maggiora, 53.

We're told Maggiora's car flipped several times before landing in a ditch. Both Strunk and a passenger, Caitlin Moore, 20, were ejected from his car. Moore was pronounced dead at the scene. Strunk was airlifted to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for treatment.

Police say drugs were likely a factor in the crash.
