One other person was seriously injured after a semi-truck drifted across the grassy median and caused a car accident.
Witnesses and authorities state that an eastbound tractor trailer crossed the median on the Bluegrass Parkway in Nelson County just outside Bardstown. The 71-year-old driver, 72-year-old male passenger, and 3-year-old passenger, all of whom were from Harrodsburg, were killed almost instantly. A fourth person in the car, 5-year-old passenger, was seriously injured and airlifted to a nearby hospital. The car accident had a tremendous impact on people in the small town of Harrodsburg. The vehicle was apparently on the way to Bowling Green to view a flower garden.
