In recent years, there have been dozens of wrecks at one dangerous intersection in Perry County but a new traffic pattern could change that.

Starting June 20th, left-hand turns from southbound Kentucky 15 onto Crawford Mountain Road and vice versa will be against the law.

A few months ago, the Hazard City Police Chief contacted transportation officials to see what could be done about this dangerous intersection.

After an inspection, officials determined that eliminating left-hand turns would prevent many accidents.

Transportation officials say there was about one wreck every month at this intersection and they hope that number goes way down.
