According to a Kentucky State Police news release, a 2007 Ford F150 pickup operated by Bradley G. Byrd, 35, of Taylorsville, was traveling north on Ky. 55 around 6:10 a.m. Tuesday.
A 1996 red Ford Mustang operated by Thompson was stopped northbound on Ky. 55, waiting to make a left turn onto Ky. 1633. The operator of the pickup failed to stop, striking the Mustang in the rear. The Mustang was forced across a double yellow line and was struck by a 1992 gold Cadillac traveling southbound on Ky. 55. The Cadillac was being operated by Charles W. Stiles, 61, of Taylorsville.
Stiles was transported to a Louisville hospital by Spencer County EMS.
Accident re-constructionists and troopers from Kentucky State Police Post 12 investigated, and the scene was not officially cleared until almost 1 p.m.
"At this stage of the investigation, it is unknown if Charles W. Stiles' seat belt was in use," the news release said. "All other drivers and passengers in the other two vehicles were unbelted."
According to the release, Byrd was injured, but was not transported by EMS.
In addition to the state police, Spencer County EMS and the Spencer County Coroner's Office, the Spencer County Sheriff's Department, Taylorsville Police Department and Taylorsville-Spencer County Fire Department also responded.
