A Hodgenville teen was injured in a two-vehicle crash about 3:30 p.m. Dec. 22.

Frederick A. Turner, 23, of Hodgenville, was driving a 2001 Buick Century south on North Lincoln Boulevard and attempted to make a left turn onto Shawnee Drive, according to Hodgenville City Police.

Turner said the light was green and the vehicle in front of him turned. He thought he had enough time to turn as well but was struck in the right front fender by a northbound 1997 Chevrolet pickup driven by Casey A. Brooks, 17, of Elizabethtown. Brooks was driving straight through the light and intersection, according to HCP.

Brooks’ passenger, 17-year-old Dylan Tisher of Hodgenville, was injured and transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital by LaRue County EMS.

Both vehicles suffered moderate to severe damage.

Officer Eddie Dockery investigated.
