LINCOLN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department is investigating a deadly crash that left one person dead and three injured.
Family members provided a photo of Scotty Ray Young, 29, and his stepgrandson Colton, who is six months old.
It happened before 6 p.m. on Monday on U.S. 150 near Tin Man Manufacturing.
Sheriff Curt Folger says a truck hauling a camper was driving eastbound on U.S. 150 when the camper came loose and went into the westbound lanes, hitting an SUV head-on.
The sheriff says the driver of the SUV was killed at the scene. On Tuesday morning, the Lincoln County Coroner identified that man as 29-year-old Scotty Ray Young.
Young was with his wife, Bonnie Young, at the time of the crash. The couple was heading to Stanford to drop off their two grandchildren
An air ambulance transported a six-month-old baby to a hospital in critical condition. Bonnie Young and another child suffered injuries in the crash. Their conditions are not known at this time.
"The westbound vehicle attempted evasive action by moving to the shoulder, but the camper was on top of it quicker than ... well, there wasn't nothing they could do," Sheriff Folger said.
Folger says the two people inside the truck were not hurt in the crash.
"It appears that it is a very, very tragic accident," Sheriff Folger said.
U.S. 150 between KY 1770 and Preachersville Road was closed for several hours while accident reconstruction teams investigated the scene. It has since reopened.
