PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Rescue squads were called after a car went over a bluff beside Highway 90 in southern Pulaski County.

Somerset Pulaski County Rescue Squad officials said the crash happened shortly before 6 p.m. on Friday.

According to police, Ralph Carrender was driving east on Highway 90. Officials said another car, driven by Casey Rose, was in a turning lane on KY-90 at Denny Lane.

They said Carrender crossed over and sideswiped Rose’s car, but officials could not confirm why.

When deputies got to the scene, they found Rose’s car in the turning lane on KY-90, but Carrender’s car went off the right shoulder of KY-90 and went over a cliff.

Officials said there were four people inside Carrender’s car. The driver and two passengers were taken to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital.

The third passenger, 66-year-old Charles F. Lovell, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Pulaski County Coroner’s Office.
