A 6-year-old boy and two others were taken to the hospital Monday after a Range Rover struck their car at the intersection of Versailles Road and Jett Boulevard.
Witnesses said the Range Rover was turning left into Parkside shopping center from Versailles a little before 12:30 p.m. when the driver, Cindy Adams, who is visiting family in Lexington from Florida, struck a gold Toyota Corolla carrying three people.
Chris Isaacs, of Frankfort, was driving the car, while Stephanie Miller and her son, Ian, both of Frankfort, were passengers.
Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Watkins says the passengers in the Toyota Corolla were heading toward Versailles as Adams turned in front of them when she had a “flashing yellow arrow.”
Paul and Debbie Sierakowski of Shelbyville were in their minivan on Jett when they saw the accident and stopped to help.
“I opened the back door (of the Toyota), and he (Ian) was trying to crawl to me,” Paul Sierakowski said. “He was crying very hard.”
Sierakowski got the boy out of the car. His right leg appeared to be injured, and he couldn’t put weight on it, Sierakowski said.
“So I just held him,” Sierakowski said.
Sierakowski also helped Miller out of the passenger seat; he said she was complaining of chest pain. He also assisted Isaacs who was in the driver’s seat.
All were transported to Frankfort Regional Medical Center where they were treated and released, said hospital spokesman Brad Wands.
Adams refused medical treatment, said Frankfort Fire Department Assistant Chief Eddie Slone.
In addition to the Frankfort Fire Department, Franklin County Sheriff’s deputies, Frankfort police and the Franklin County Fire Department responded to the crash.
