Boone County, KY (November 30, 2020) – A vehicle collision reported in Boone County claimed the life of a young adult on Wednesday, according to reports. At approximately 2:20 p.m., on November 25, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office responded to the site of a vehicle collision on US Highway 42 in Verona.

Reports show that an 18-year-old male was driving east on the highway in a 2006 Toyota Corolla when his vehicle collided with a 1998 Toyota Camry, which was driven by a 33-year-old male. The Corolla then bounced off the vehicle and crashed into a 2017 Ford F-350 pickup truck, which was driven by a 39-year-old male. The driver of the Ford was transported to St. Elizabeth Medical Hospital in Florence for the treatment of minor injuries. The 18-year-old male sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased. At this time, the cause of the collision remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Fatal Car Accidents in Kentucky

Cars, pickup trucks, and SUVs are some of the most common methods of transportation throughout the entire country. Motor vehicles have made many advances since they became widely available in our country. Though there have been endless measures taken to incorporate and improve safety features in vehicles, there is no way to guarantee the safety of vehicle occupants involved in collisions. We continue to see people lose their lives from collisions at an alarming rate.

Every year, more than 40,000 people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across the United States. We see our fair share of fatal accidents here in Ohio.
