One killed & two others injured in crash

Investigators are trying to figure out what led up to a deadly crash Sunday night that killed one person and sent two others to the hospital.

The Lawrence County Sheriff says Eric Blair lost control of a vehicle on Kentucky 1, causing the car to run off the side of the road and hit an embankment.

Blair and passenger Amanda Burchett were flown to Saint Mary’s hospital in Huntington with life threatening injuries.

A third passenger, Ben Burchett the Second, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials say seat belts were not used and alcohol and drugs played a factor in the crash.
