Attempt at illegal u-turn being blamed for crash on I-24
An illegal u-turn is being partially blamed for a two car crash that injured one.
Kentucky State Police say on Sunday they were called to Interstate 24 in Lyon County near the 42 mile maker on reports of a crash with injuries.
When they got there, troopers found a black car upside-down in the median near the gravel turn around, and a damaged SUV close by.
Witnesses told troopers that the car changed lanes suddenly, and started braking in an attempt to make an illegal u-turn.
The driver of the SUV tried to stop, but rear-ended the car.
The driver of the car, 55-year-old Aubrey Martin of California, was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries. He was also charged with multiple traffic violations.
The driver of the SUV was not injured.
