LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - WAVE 3 has learned the man involved in a serious accident on the Gene Snyder Freeway is the same man who pleaded guilty in the 1994 killing of a University of Kentucky football player.
Shane Ragland was seriously injured in an accident Saturday. Police say Ragland was driving a Dodge Durango going north on the Gene Snyder to exit on east bound 64. Police say the Durango overturned and Ragland, who was alone in the vehicle and not wearing a seatbelt was ejected from the vehicle. Witnesses told police that Ragland was driving fast, especially for the curve in the ramp and wet conditions of the road.
Ragland was taken to University Hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries. But he was in serious condition on Saturday according to police. Police say no charges were filed against Ragland on Saturday.
Prosecutors in the murder case against Ragland said he shot and killed UK football player Trent DiGiuro in 1994. Originally a jury found Ragland guilty of murder but, on appeal Ragland pled guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to time served.
