An 18-year-old Ashland man was killed Wednesday in a two-vehicle accident on the Northeastern Kentucky Industrial Parkway.
Nathan Nickell was pronounced dead at Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital shortly after the collision, which occurred about 12:30 p.m. at the intersection of the parkway and Lost Lick Road in Greenup County, Kentucky State Police at Ashland said.
According to the KSP, Nickell was driving a 1992 Honda westbound on Lost Lick Road and entered the parkway into the path of a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado pickup driven by Joyce Callahan, 70, of Olive Hill.
The KSP said it appeared Nickell failed to stop at the intersection. Callhan’s vehicle struck Nickell’s in the passenger side. Both vehicles left the roadway following the impact.
Nickell was not weating a seat belt and was ejected from his car, the KSP said. He was pronounced dead at OLBH by Greenup County Coroner Neil Wright.
Callahan and passenger Freda Rivers, 55, also were not wearing seat belts at the time of the collision. Both were transported to Cabell Huntington Hospital and were listed in fair condition, the KSP said.
Multiple agencies responded to the accident, including Greenup County Sheriff’s Department, Little Sandy Fire Department, Greenup County EMS, KDMC Health Net, KSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement and the Greenup County Coroner’s Office.
The collision remains under investigation by Trooper Ben Tanner.
