SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A woman is dead and two children are hurt after a crash in Scott County.

The crash happened Friday around 7 a.m. on Long Lick Pike, between Lloyd Road and Glass Pike.

The sheriff’s office says two vehicles collided head-on in a curve.

According to the sheriff’s office, Steven Ketterer, of Stamping Ground, was driving a pickup truck when he was briefly distracted and looked away from the road. He stated that when he looked back up, he was in the other lane and struck a passenger car.

The driver of the car, 28-year-old Kristen Charron, was taken to UK Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

The sheriff’s office says two 9-year-old children were in the back seat of Charron’s car. One suffered moderate injuries and the other is in critical condition.

The sheriff’s office says wet roads, dense fog, and seat belt usage are considered as factors in the crash.
