On Saturday evening, shortly after 6:30, KSP responded to an accident on KY 176, just west of Ebenezer, where two vehicles had collided head-on.

When the trooper arrived, both drivers were trapped in their vehicles and one of the cars was on fire.

With the assistance of two fire departments, the flames were extinguished, and both drivers were removed from the vehicles.
