KUTTAWA, KY (5/22/12) – On Saturday, April 19, at approximately 6:10 PM, Ryan Young, a Kuttawa resident, was traveling East on Chestnut Oak Road, negotiating a right curve.
According to Kentucky State Police (KSP) officials, Young was unable to negotiate the curve and went straight across the oncoming lane and ran off the left side of the roadway. He then traveled down an embankment where he came to final rest.
Young was able to climb out of the vehicle and contacted a person to pick him up. As they were traveling on Chestnut Oak Road, for unknown reasons, Young jumped from the vehicle.
Young was transported from the scene by Lyon County EMS and then flown to Deaconess Hospital by PHI air ambulance.
The investigation is ongoing by Trooper Eric Fields.
