GAMALIEL, KY (Fri 15 Sep 2017) - Kentucky State Police investigated a two vehicle injury collision on Gamaliel Road near the intersection of Sugar Grove Road today around 9:42amCT

Preliminary investigations indicate that 48 year-old Randall Stafford of La Fayette, TN was operating a 1987 Peterbuilt semi-truck traveling north on Gamaliel Road near the intersection of Sugar Grove Road, when he entered a curve causing the trailer to cross the centerline striking a 2002 Dodge pickup being operated by 20 year-old Austin Pruitt of Hardyville, KY.

The vehicle traveled down the side of the trailer being pulled by Stafford before striking the rear tires causing the Pruitt vehicle to spin out of control, strike a guardrail and overturn.
