Blake Cohorn was in a passenger in the front seat of the Lumina.
The driver, Rocky Cohorn, 26, and another front seat passenger, Wendy Cohorn, 23 were taken to UK Hospital for treatment.

Donny Cohorn, 26, Katlyn Cohorn, 3, and Landon Cohorn, 4 1/2 months were transported to Frankfort Regional Hospital for their injuries.

Both occupants of the Jetta are also at UK Hospital.
