A United Parcel Service truck and a car collided in Lousville, Kentucky on December 2nd, 2013, resulting in the wrongful death of one person and a hospitalization in serious condition for another.
At around 11 p.m. on Monday, December 2nd, 2013, a UPS truck collided with a car in Louisville, Kentucky. Police received a call that the accident had taken place at South Third Street near Churchill Downs by Southern Parkway. Police have determined that the injured were driving a Chevy impala east on West Kenton street and did not stop at the stop sign before they crossed to South Third Street. When they did so, they crashed into the UPS truck. Both passengers in the impala were not wearing seatbelts, but the driver of the UPS truck was.
After the collision, the two injured persons were taken to a local hospital and treated for injuries. One of the passengers, 19 year-old Kendall Daub, was fatally injured. The driver of the truck sustained injuries, but none that are reportedly too serious. The police and investigators have not determined whether excessive speed or alcohol were involved in the crash.
Police state that this type of devastating accident highlights the importance of seatbelt use and that if the two had been wearing seatbelts, they may have prevented the death and serious injuries.
