Five Hospitalized After 4-Vehicle Crash

By Justin Wilfon

(LOUISVILLE) -- A crash involving four vehicles this morning has left five people hospitalized, including a young girl in critical condition. It happened around 8:30 at Breckenridge Lane and Manner Dale. WAVE 3's Justin Wilfon has the latest.

According to police and witness reports, a man driving a Chevrolet pickup truck southbound in the 3300 block of Breckenridge Lane served into the northbound lane and into the path of a Ford Taurus, striking it head-on.

Two other cars were sideswiped in the collision.

A girl who appeared to be between 5 years old, was taken to Kosair Children's Hospital and we're told her injuries are life-threatening.

Four other people, including the drivers of the pickup truck and Taurus, were also hospitalized but they are expected to recover.

Karl Oerther says it was a violent crash. "I heard a series of loud explosions, one right after the other -- just horrific booms."

Police don't know what caused the driver of the pickup truck to swerve, but speculate that he may have been suffering from a medical condition such as a seizure.
