A McCreary County woman was severely injured in a Monday morning accident in Burnside that claimed the lives of two others.
The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department reported that Brandy C. Montgomery, 41, of Pine Knot was driving northbound on U.S. 27 around 6:30 a.m. when her vehicle reportedly crossed into the southbound lane, striking a vehicle driven by Deanna Jean Chaney, 42, of Eubank. Chaney, and her passenger – her five-year-old granddaughter, passed away as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
Montgomery was transferred to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for treatment of life-threatening injuries.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
