MOUNT STERLING, Ky. (WKYT) – New details are emerging after a deadly crash in Montgomery County.

The coroner was on scene follwoing a crash between an SUV and a car.

Police shut down all lanes of U.S. 460, also known as Camargo Road, near Greenbrier Road just after four Saturday morning.

According to authorities, the SUV was headed westbound when it collided with the eastbound car.

The driver of the car died in the crash. The driver of the SUV has been taken to UK Hospital and immediately taken into surgery.
