Two people hurt in 3 car collision

A three car accident in McCracken County sends two people to the hospital.

Deputies say it happened around 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon at the intersection of US 60 and Maxon.

Investigators say Thelma Carlton, 82, was driving southbound on Maxon when she failed to yield to oncoming traffic going westbound on US 60.

Carlton then crossed into the path of Crystal Piper, 28, and Michael Piper, 32, hitting their vehicle.

Piper's vehicle then struck the middle guardrail.

A third vehicle driven by Henry Coffelt, 20, tried to avoid the collision, but lost control and hit a guardrail.

Both Coffelt and Carlton were transported to area hospitals for non-life threatening injuries.

Mercy EMS and Concord FD assisted on scene.
