Crash Causes Chaos on AA Highway
When this truck flipped after hitting a pickup, steel plates flew down the highway
and hit a car.
A Ford Ranger pickup truck is among the trees and brush.

Looking South 
A complex crash on the AA highway in Alexandria sent six people to the hospital
Tuesday afternoon, some with serious injuries.

The crash happened when a southbound semi hauling a flatbed trailer loaded with steel
plates t-boned a Ford Ranger pickup that was coming onto the highway from Poplar
Ridge Road.  Investigators on the scene immediately after the crash hadn't determined
which driver might have been at fault or exactly how the crash came about.

The impact sent the pickup truck forward and off the right side of the highway, where
it landed upside down among trees and bushes. The impact also caused the
tractor-trailer to flip. 

Coming the opposite way up the hill was a large road crane. When the driver of the
crane saw the crash happening, he swerved to the right to avoid it, but when his
right wheels went off the right side of the highway, the whole crane flipped. It was
never touched by any other vehicle or debris.

When the tractor trailer flipped, the load of steel plates it was carrying skittered
down the highway, with at least one of them flying into the front of a passenger car
containing two adults and a child. Between this and other material from other
vehicles, the debris field on the highway stretched for hundreds of feet.

It took a major rescue effort to get the three injured people out of the pickup
truck. Two were flown to the hospital, with the third being driven there. The people
in the passenger car seemed to have lesser injuries, but all were taken to the
hospital.

Alexandria Police and fire representatives on the scene said there is a history of
crashes at this and another nearby intersection on the AA, when people seeing a
yellow light speed up to trying to make it through the intersection before it turns
red.  They said they didn't know if that kind of thing was any kind of factor in this
wreck.

The AA Highway, also known as Kentucky Route 9, is built somewhat like an interstate
highway, with high speed limits and some divided sections, but it has occasional
cross roads and traffic lights.



THREE OF THESE PEOPLE WERE MY FAMILY. AND ONE PERSON MY COUSIN, HEATHER EVANS, IS
GOING TO DIE, SO I WOULD VERY MUCH APPREICIATE IT IF YOU WOULD PRAY FOR HER. PLEASE,
THE HOSPITAL WILL NOT ALLOW COUSINS IN AND HER MOM IS SEIRIOSLY INJURED, TOO. SO
PLEASE PRAY FOR HER IF YOU WANT HER TO LIVE.
Thank You For Your Support,

Julia Jones
