The holiday season is in full swing in Kentucky. People who are normally in a hurry to get from point A to point B may now be in an even bigger hurry. The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can result in distracted driving, which can, in turn, can cause tragic accidents. Such was the case recently in Pike County.
Two people are dead in what appears to have been a head-on collision. The accident happened at about 2:00 in the afternoon at Brushy Fork in Beefhide. One man, a 54-year-old from Premium, was pronounced dead at the scene. Another person, a 27-year-old male, was airlifted to a nearby hospital where he later died as a result of his injuries. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
