A Guston, Ky. driver and an infant who was a passenger in the vehicle were injured Monday on North U.S. 27, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department reports.

Johnie E. White, 47, of Guston, and a five-month-old baby were transported to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital by the Somerset Fire/EMS Department after their vehicle was struck head-on by a vehicle driven by Jordan Taylor, 19, of Science Hill.

The accident occurred shortly before 4:30 p.m. Monday about four miles north of the Somerset city limits.

Officials say Taylor, who was traveling southbound on U.S. 27, lost control of his vehicle and crossed the center line of the highway, striking White’s vehicle.

Sheriff’s units were assisted at the scene by the Science Hill Volunteer Fire Department.
