According to Deputy Odell Smith, Braxton King was travelling southbound around 9:48 p.m. when two 4-wheelers crossed the road in front of him. Moments later a Polaris Ranger side-by-side was also traveling southbound on or near the shoulder when it suddenly turned in to the path of King’s vehicle.
The driver of the recreational vehicle, identified as Daniel H. Duncan was transported to LCRH and later airlifted by Air Methods to the University of Kentucky Medical Center, where he was released two days later. A passenger, identified as Megan Rose, was also transported to LCRH where she was treated and released.
Members of North McCreary, Eagle/Sawyer and Whitley City Fire Departments and McCreary County EMS assisted at the scene.
