A 90-year-old Kentucky man driving a white Honda was killed in a collision with a tractor-trailer on June 21, 2016. His female passenger was taken to an area medical center after the incident that occurred as the couple was leaving the Eastwood Shopping Center in Frankfort. As they exited on Versailles Road, the vehicle pulled under the rear tires of an oncoming semi.
U.S. roads were more dangerous in 2015, according to statistics provided by the National Safety Council. The agency reported that almost 19,000 people were killed in car accidents between January and June last year, which is a 14 percent increase over the first half of 2014. Kentucky road fatalities rose 9 percent during that period.
