Rockcastle County Sheriff's deputies said a two-car collision on US-150 sent four people to the hospital Wednesday night.

Deputies said the wreck happened just after 10 p.m.--a male driver turned east onto the highway, and a vehicle filled with five people crashed into it.

Only three of the five people inside the second vehicle accepted medical attention. Deputies said two of them went to Rockcastle Regional Hospital; the other was flown to UK Hospital, along with the lone male driver.

"The driver of that vehicle had to be extricated by Brodhead Fire Department. They did an excellent job getting him out of the vehicle...and EMS packaged him for transport," said Rockcastle Sheriff's Deputy Matt Bryant.

Traffic was backed up in both directions on US-150 for more than an hour and a half while crews cleaned up the road.

Deputies weren't sure of the extent of the victims' injuries at the time of the crash, but did say they weren't life-threatening.
