Also injured were Karen Vuturo, age 52, of Brandenburg, Kentucky, and Vonda Carnegie. Bobby Alvey, age 41, of Louisville, Kentucky was in one of the vehicles involved in the three vehicle car crash, but initial reports indicate that he was not suffering injuries immediately following the accident.

The reports indicate that Pandy’s 1996 Honda Civic crossed the center line of the road, struck Carnegie’s 2005 Honda Accord and the crossed back into the southbound flow of traffic and struck Alvey’s 2000 Ford Focus. The Accident happened around 3:30 p.m. near the Dixie Highway & Brandenburg Station Road intersection. At this time it is unclear why Pandy’s vehicle lost control. Carnegie and Vuturo will have legal claims to recovery for the injuries, medical bills, pain & suffering, and any lost wages related to being off work due to their injuries. Alvey, who was not initially showing signs of injury, may need some medical attention in the future (as soft tissue injuries may take a few days to set in), and in which case he too would have legal claims related to this accident. Depending upon what the investigation shows in the cause of Pandy’s loss of control of his vehicle, he family and his Estate may also have legal claims related to his death.

Trinity High School students in Louisville, Kentucky were given the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of a car simulator which simulates how difficult it is to drive after consuming alcohol. The simulation was part of a school-wide effort to educate students on the dangers of drinking and driving. These students also went through a seminar on accident statistics and videos of actual accidents. The Company that does the simulation also has simulations of the problems that come with texting and driving, drug use and driving, and cell phone use while driving. The goal of the simulation program is to impress upon young drivers the severity of poor driving decisions.

Everyday in Kentucky, people are killed and injured in accidents that are related to driver negligence, which includes driving under the influence of alcohol. Programs like this one will hopefully cause young people to be more careful when they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. It gives them a chance to experience the problems before they actually happen, which can alter poor decision making.
