Nancy man airlifted to UK after Friday night wreck

Local News

A Nancy man was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center Friday night when authorities responded to reports of two injury accidents that happened south of Somerset roughly within 20 minutes of each other.

According to a press release from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, Dustin M. Brumley, 18, of Harvey Street, Nancy, was injured when his vehicle left the roadway at approximately 9:52 p.m. Friday.

Brumley was operating a 2001 Volvo on Slate Branch Road when the vehicle left the roadway and struck an earthen embankment.

After the initial impact, the vehicle overturned numerous times before coming to a rest.

Brumley was treated at the scene by the Somerset Fire/EMS, and he was flown to the UK Medical Center by Air-Evac.

Brumley was listed in fair condition at the UK Medical Center.

Authorities responded to another accident at 10:11 p.m. Friday at the intersection of S. U.S. 27 and Ky. 914 that involved two vehicles and left several people injured.

According to the sheriff’s department, Timothy L. Combs II, 16, of Helvetia Road, London, was operating a 1996 Nissan southbound on South U.S. 27 when he attempted to make a left turn onto Ky. 914 and collided with a northbound 1996 Honda.

According to the press release, Combs failed to stop for the traffic signal at the intersection.

The driver of the Honda, Valerie Simpson, 18, of Faubush Road, Nancy, was treated at the scene and transported to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital by Somerset Fire/EMS.

Two passengers in Combs’ vehicle, John Minniard, 16, of Fishermans Cove, London, and Tiffany Napier, 16, of Chaney Ridge Road, London, were also treated at the scene and transported to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department was assisted at both scenes by the Parkers Mill Fire Department.
