This Kentucky car crash happened Tuesday around 8:00 p.m. at the intersection of US 60 Bypass and Canton Road, 2 miles west of Cadiz, Kentucky. Reports indicate that Mary Taylor, of Barbourville, was driving westbound on Canton Road and failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection with US 60 Bypass. Upon entering the intersection, Taylor’s vehicle was struck on the passenger side by a vehicle driven by Kristena Gallimore, of Dresden, TN, which was traveling eastbound on US 60 Bypass. Taylor’s failure to stop at the stop sign and failure to yield the right of way to Gallimore appears to be the cause of this accident.
Kristena Gallimore, age 44, had passengers in her vehicle, Timothy Gallimore, age 36, and Kaitlyn Gallimore, age 12. All the Gallimore were taken to Trigg County Hospital to be treated for their injuries.
Mary Dell, age 49, and Jonas Dell, age 15, were both passengers in Taylor’s vehicle. Mary Dell died from injuries she received in the crash and Jonas dell was flown to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville to be treated for his injuries. Ms. Taylor was also flown to Vanderbilt Hospital.
This Kentucky auto accident could result in multiple Kentucky legal claims which would include both Kentucky Personal Injury Claims for those hurt in the crash and survived and a Kentucky Wrongful Death Claim related to the death of Mary Dell.
