Two die on US-127 after three-car wreck
In April 16 Issue

An Ohio teenager and a 21-year-old Dunnville man were killed in a three-car wreck on Saturday afternoon just north of the Russell County line, according to Kentucky State Police.

The collision happened on U.S. 127 around 12:35 p.m. in the Dunnville community of Casey County.

A 2001 Chevrolet being driven by Francisco Javier Marcial, 21, of Dunnville, was traveling southbound when his vehicle struck a 1998 Dodge pickup, driven by Jeffrey Stafford, 34, of Russell Springs, which had stopped in traffic, according to a police report.

After hitting the Stafford vehicle, Marcial's vehicle crossed the center line and struck a 2006 Toyota, driven by 17-year-old Hannah Young of Springfield, Ohio, head on.

Young was pronounced dead at the scene by the Casey County Coroner, according to state police.

Passengers in the Young vehicle were Hannah Young's mother, Edith Young, 51, her friend Adam Burns, 17, and her brother Keenan Young, 13, all of Springfield, Ohio.

All of the following were taken to the Russell County Hospital and were treated and released.

Stafford was taken to the Russell County Hospital where he was also treated and released.

Marcial was transported from the wreck scene to the Russell County Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A female passenger in the Marcial vehicle, Monica Zuniqa, 13, was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center in Lexington and was, at last report, listed in critical condition.

All persons involved were wearing seat belts at the time of the wreck.

The Kentucky State Police was assisted at the scene by the Casey County Sheriff's Department, Casey County Fire and Rescue, the Casey County Highway Department and Casey County EMS.

The collision is being investigated by Sgt. Jamie Heller with the Kentucky State Police.

Statistics show that 12 people died in 11 separate crashes on Kentucky roadways last week.

Ten of the crashes involved motor vehicles and six of those victims were not wearing seat belts.

Single-fatality crashes occurred in Bell, Fayette, Laurel, Lawrence, Madison, Montgomery, Pike and Pulaski  counties. The suspected use of alcohol was a factor in three of the crashes. The wreck in Dunnville was a double-fatality wreck.

One motorcycle crash occurred in Jefferson County and the suspected use of alcohol was a factor in that crash. The victim was wearing a helmet.

Through April 12, state police statistics show that 187 people have been killed on Kentucky roads this year. This is 12 fewer than reported for the same time period last year.

Of the 161 motor vehicle fatalities, 92 victims were not wearing seat belts. Twelve pedestrians have been killed. Twelve fatalities involved a motorcycle and two fatalities involved an all-terrain vehicle.

A total of 45 fatalities have resulted from crashes involving the suspected use of alcohol.

Citizens can contribute to highway safety by reporting erratic drivers to the Kentucky State Police toll-free at 1-800-222-5555. Callers will remain anonymous and should give a description of the vehicle, location, direction of travel and license number if possible.
