A two vehicle I-64 crash took the lives of a two-year-old child and a 23-year-old sailor a few weeks before Christmas. The accident allegedly occurred near mile marker 106 shortly after 9:00 a.m. on Thursday December 12, 2013.
According to reports of the accident, a Nissan crossed the median and collided with a Mercury Mountaineer. The Nissan was reportedly driven by a 23-year-old Navy sailor from Missouri. There were no reports of any passengers in the sailor’s vehicle. The Mercury Mountaineer was reportedly driven by a grandmother. Her daughter and two grandchildren were reportedly passengers in her vehicle.
The Navy sailor who was driving the Nissan was reportedly killed in the crash. A two-year-old girl, Marissa Summers, of Laconia Indiana was a passenger in the Mercury Mountaineer and she was also allegedly killed in this I-64 accident. An 11-month-child, Brynlee Summers, who was also a passenger in the Mercury Mountaineer was airlifted to Kosair Children’s Hospital in critical condition. She reportedly suffered a broken neck and bleeding on the brain. Both children were reportedly in car seats at the time of this accident. The driver of the Mountaineer and her adult daughter survived the collision.
Our I-64 accident lawyers extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of those who died in this crash and we extend our best wishes to Brynlee Summers for a full and fast recovery from the serious injuries that she sustained in this Kentucky accident.
