Kentucky State Police are investigating a deadly four vehicle crash near the Henderson and Union County line. Police say that Seth Cross sideswiped two trucks causing him to hit another vehicle head on while driving east near Highland Creek Bridge when his car crossed into the westbound lane. The passengers involved in the crash were taken in the hospital in stable condition. Mr. Cross was killed in the wreck.
The investigating police department should be performing a full investigation, including an accident reconstruction, as a matter of routine in such a serious accident. While driver error is always a prime suspect, things like mechanical error and product defects should be considered and ruled out by the investigation.
Hopefully, those who survived make speedy recoveries and all involved get answers to the questions they will certainly have regarding how this occurred.
