Somerset —

Smith noted that a detective was sent to the UK hospital at about 1 a.m. after the wreck to serve a warrant to collect Litton’s blood for testing. However, Smith said it will be a while until any conclusive results are known, likely about two weeks.
Pulaski District Court Judge Scott Lawless issued a $250,000 bond for Litton.
Traffic on west Ky. 80 was blocked for about three hours as the SPD Accident Reconstruction Unit conducted its on-scene investigation.
