A Livermore man was sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries on Christmas when a car he was riding in was involved in a three-car collision.
Kentucky State Police said Trooper Scott Curry responded to a call in the 4000 block of U.S. 431 in Livermore last Friday where three cars were involved in a chain-reaction collision. Curry stated in a report that Brandon Tapp, 19, of Owensboro, was driving southbound on U.S. 431 when a deer entered the roadway.
Tapp, stopped the Mustang abruptly in the middle of the road, but the two vehicles behind him were unable to stop in time because of heavy rain and water on the roadway.
A 16-year-old, of Livermore, was driving directly behind Tapp, and Seth Kroeger, 19, also of Livermore, was driving behind the minor.
Jonathan Kroeger, 18, of Livermore, Seth Kroeger’s passenger, was transported to the hospital by McLean County emergency medical services with non-life-threatening injuries.
The Livermore Fire Department also responded to the scene.
