KSP: Injury Collision in Casey Co.

By Sergeant Jason Morris

Liberty, KY - The Kentucky State Police investigated a two-vehicle injury collision on KY 49 near Martens Road approximately 10 miles north of Liberty on Thursday, July 9, 2020, around 1:04pmET.

Preliminary investigation indicates a 2001 Freightliner semi-tractor trailer being operated by 48-year old Dale Meredith of Horse Cave was traveling South on KY 49 when for an unknown reason he crossed the centerline. Meredith overcorrected causing the load of logs to shift traveling back into the oncoming lane striking a 2013 Chevrolet operated by 27-year old Ida Burton of Liberty.

Meredith and Burton were both air lifted to the University of Kentucky Hospital with severe injuries.

Sergeant Randall Honeycutt investigated the collision, and assisted by Kentucky State Police, Casey Co Sheriff's Office, EMS, and Fire Department.
