Kentucky State Police were called to the scene of a Rockcastle County crash on Monday, March 4, 2013. The reported accident occurred on US-25, south of Mount Vernon.
According to accident reports, 42-year-old Timothy Milburn of Mount Vernon was driving a 1999 white Nissan Frontier pickup truck southbound on US-25 when the truck began going off the roadway to the left. Mr. Milburn reportedly overcorrected the vehicle and crossed the center line into the northbound lane where he collided head-on with a 2000 blue Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. The Silverado was driven by 67-year-old Hollis Marcum also of Mount Vernon.
Mr. Milburn and his passenger, 20-year-old Timothy S. Milburn, were both flown to University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington for treatment of their head-on collision injuries. Both were later listed in stable condition.
Mr. Marcum was taken to Rockcastle County hospital for treatment of his car accident injuries and was later released.
The Kentucky State Police are investigating this accident and report that they do not believe drugs or alcohol to be a cause of the crash.
In 2011, the most recent year for which complete statistics are available, there were 1,499 two-car, head-on collisions in Kentucky. Seventy-five people died in those crashes, and many more were injured.
