A Greenup County sheriff's deputy is suffering from serious injuries after a car hit him while the officer was attending to another accident.
Deputy Matthew Smith was responding to an accident along with tow truck driver, Lloyd Caudill, on Kentucky 207 in Argaillite Thursday evening, a news release from the Kentucky State Police said. Troopers said Smith had the northbound lane of KY 207 closed while Caudill was preparing the wrecked vehicle to be towed. A car being driven by Christina Nethercutt of Argillite struck the two men who were located between the deputy's cruiser and the tow truck, the release said.
Smith suffered serious injuries, but they don't appear to be life-threatening. Caudill was treated at the scene. Nethercutt was not injured, and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the accident. The accident remains under investigation by State Police.
