Police have reported that Mikey Ward, age 32, of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky was driving southbound on U.S. 127 when for an undetermined reason his car began to travel in the northbound lane. Due to Ward traveling in the wrong lane, his car crashed head-on into a car being driven by Kara Kistner, age 30. Ms. Kistner and her passenger, Allison Fitzgerald, both of Owenton, Kentucky, were critically injured in this Kentucky car crash and taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center. Ward died from his injuries sustained in the auto accident while being treated at Frankfort Regional Medical Center.
This tragic car crash appears to be a clear case of liability on the part of Ward as he was in the wrong lane of traffic. Ms. Kistner and Ms. Fitzgerald both have Kentucky auto accident personal injury claims against Ward’s Estate and his insurance company. Additionally, due to the severity of the injuries of these two young ladies, they will also need to examine the potential of uninsured and/or underinsured motorist insurance coverage. In tragic auto accidents, it is important to fully understand all the potential insurance coverage to be sure that the injured parties receive all the financial recovery possible for the damages they have suffered.
