Kentucky State Police have reported two recent accidents which are believed to be the fault of driver overcorrection after losing control of their vehicle.
On Ky-44, Charity Waldridge lost control of her vehicle at the intersection of Ky-1060 after she overcorrected her vehicle and entered the westbound lane of Ky-44. Her car struck another vehicle driven by Billy White. Mr. White was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. A juvenile was also injured in this accident.
On Ky-1295, in Madison County, Kentucky, a car wreck has also happened due to driver overcorrection. Brandon Gross, age 18, of Richmond, Kentucky, was reported to have been driving east on Ky-1295 when his car partially left the roadway. Gross appears to have overcorrected and then entered the westbound lane, which caused a collision with a car driven by Garland Adams, age 61, of Stanford, Kentucky. Mr. Adams was flown to UK Medical Center where he died.
