Accident Reconstruction Two People Dead in Lexington Crash

A head on crash that killed two people and left two others hurt, shut down a major Lexington road for hours during rush hour on Wednesday. The wreck happened Wednesday afternoon on Versailles Road near Terrace View Drive.

Now as police are trying to figure out what caused this wreck and if alcohol was involved, thoughts are with the many victims.

“They had to use the jaws of life, it’s destroyed beyond recognition,” said Aaron Sutherland when looking at the cars left at the scene.

“The front tire and the back tire were about two feet apart, so it was pretty disturbing,” added Kevin Dunaway. He lives nearby and heard the wreck. Both the terrible sight, and even worse sound are what witnesses of this crash can’t shake.

“I heard the screeching of the brakes. I heard them try to brake, but then I heard the impact,” said Ashley Jones. She was walking down the sidewalk with her kids when suddenly she heard, “metal, like an explosion, it was really loud.”

The coroner said the two cars were heading in opposite directions at around 3:15 p.m. when somehow the two hit head on. As quick as the cars collided and crumbled, rescue crews were cutting metal to get to the victims.

“You could tell it was a pretty tragic accident,” said Dunaway.

A woman was the only person in the gray car. She was cut from the wreck and taken to University of Kentucky Hospital. The coroner said three men were in the dark blue car, but only one lived. That man was also taken to UK Hospital. As of Wednesday night, both the man and the woman’s conditions were unknown, however friends of the woman said she would be alright.

Investigators spent about three hours on scene and diverted traffic away from the area. The coroner said alcohol may be  a factor in the cause of the crash.

“The part that’s upsetting, is when we find alcohol containers in the vehicle where the death has occurred,” said Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn.

The coroner said toxicology tests will be performed, however whatever the outcome, hearts go out to these families.

“You’re in my thoughts and prayers,” said Dunaway.

The coroner has not released the names of the two men who passed away, but said both were young.

A woman accused of burglary in connection with the 2010 death of a Scott County bus driver was in court Monday.

Ciji Jefferson tearfully entered a guilty plea to complicity to commit robbery. Jefferson’s attorney said she pleaded guilty to the charges in order to put the events behind her.

Her trial was originally set to start January 21. Jefferson was charged with burglary in connection with the death of Sue Jones. Jones was found beaten to death inside her Georgetown home.

The judge accepted Jefferson’s guilty plea. Sentencing could happen as early as March 10, but her attorney said it was possible it could be postponed until after the trial of Nicholas Willinger. Police say Willinger is the person who killed Jones.

The Commonwealth had no sentencing recommendation.

Missing Person Clifron Sigman of Carter County Still Missing

Tuesday night, dozens of people are expected to attend a candlelight vigil for a Carter County man missing for more than a month.  Leigh Searcy caught up with Clifton Sigman’s mother.

She is haunted by the last time she heard his voice.

Clifton Sigman disappeared in December of 2014. There’s still no sign of him, and it’s not because of lack of looking. His community has searched the hills and valley’s of Carter County trying to find any hint of what happened to him.  Leigh Searcy asked Sabrina Sigman, Clifton’s mother, if she thinks he’s still alive.  She said that she didn’t think so, but that she hasn’t given up hope.

http://liarcatchers.com/missing_persons_investigations.html

Clifton was last seen the night of Dec. 2 at his mother’s home.  He exchanged words with his brother, then went for a walk down Stump Run Road to cool off.  Some of his belongings were found on a nearby property.  Sabrina Sigman played the mysterious last voice mail she received from her son later that night.

Hey, hey, you all awake? Hey…(unintelligible) calling me back. I got a ride,” was all this worried mother heard.

And, it’s still a mystery.  She doesn’t know who he was with or what happened to him.  She wishes whoever knows where he is would come forward with that information.

Until then, Sabrina is going to pray and is asking the community to do the same.

Clifton Sigman
