Two injured in wreck that blocked Kentucky 91 Friday

Posted: Updated:
CALDWELL COUNTY, Ky. -

The drivers of two commercial trucks had to be taken to hospitals Friday after a head-on wreck on Kentucky 91 that caused the road to be closed for more than four hours Friday, according to Kentucky State Police. 

KSP says 54-year-old Ronald Merrick of Princeton, Kentucky, was driving a tractor-trailer northbound on KY 91 when the vehicle ran off the road. Merrick over-corrected, and his vehicle entered the southbound lane —colliding with a dump truck loaded with gravel driven by 51-year-old James Vandiver. 

KSP says Merrick was taken by helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and Vandiver was taken to Caldwell County Hospital. 

KSP says its commercial enforcement division is investigating the wreck.
