KSP investigates fatal collision in Russell Co.
By Trooper Jonathan Houk
Russell Springs, KY - Kentucky State Police Post 15 troopers responded to a three-vehicle collision in Russell County on Monday night, May 17, 2021, at approximately 9:19pmCT. KSP Post 15 was contacted by Russell County Dispatch and requested to investigate a three-vehicle fatal collision at the intersection of US 127 and Fields Rd. approximately 3 miles north of Russell Springs.
The preliminary investigation revealed that Ronald Mosley, age 41 of London, entered US 127 traveling south from Fields Rd. in a 1994 Ford dump truck. Victor Cruz, age 26 of Russell Springs, was traveling south on US 127 in a 2011 Ford Focus passenger car. Cruz's vehicle struck Mosley's vehicle in the rear. Cruz's vehicle then entered into the northbound lane of US 127 and struck Wesley Flatt, age 30 of Russell Springs, operating a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis.
A passenger in Cruz's vehicle, Miguel Ramirez, age 26, of Russell Springs, as well as Cruz were airlifted and transported to University of Kentucky hospital in Lexington with life-threatening injuries. Ramirez was later pronounced deceased at the University of Kentucky hospital by the Fayette County Coroner's Office.
A portion of KY 127 was closed for several hours to allow troopers to reconstruct the collision.
KSP Post 15 was assisted at the scene by the Russell County Sheriff's Office, Russell County EMS and Russell Springs Fire Department. The collision is still under investigation by Sergeant Adam Likins.
