Slick roads may have contributed to a three vehicle accident on Winchester Road Monday that sent four people to the hospital.
Kate Williams, 17, of Ravenna left Estill County High School going to work in the school’s co-op program. According to the accident report by Estill Sheriff Gary Freeman, she lost control of her 2001 Toyota Camry as she negotiated a curve near the school.
Her vehicle slid into a Ford Escort being driven by Billy McGee, 29, of Stacy Lane. Mattie McGee was a passenger.
Williams’ vehicle then hit a Chevrolet Cavalier being driven by Chandra Chaffin of Richmond before coming to rest on a guardrail.
Freeman’s report stated there was severe damage to all vehicles and three towing services were called to the scene.
Winchester Road was closed briefly causing traffic to back up for about a mile.
All parties were transported to Marcum & Wallace Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
