Truck traffic is a fact of life and automobile drivers must co-exist on Kentucky roadways with truck drivers. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season everyone, including truck drivers, is typically harried and distracted. Distracted driving may have contributed to a tragic crash involving a car and a tractor-trailer on Christmas Eve in Louisa.
The accident occurred on US-23 on the afternoon of Dec. 24. The occupants of the car were two women and a 12-year-old girl. The car slowed to make a left hand turn and was hit from behind by the semitrailer. All three occupants of the car were pronounced dead at the scene.
