The Christmas holiday proved dangerous to motorists with at least three wrecks occurring last week.
LaRue County Deputy Matt Darst investigated a three-vehicle crash on Old E’town Road about 7 p.m. Dec. 26.
Kim Burns, 18, of Elizabethtown, was driving a 2006 Scion east when, according to witnesses, she attempted to pass two vehicles in a no passing zone. She ran off the right side of the roadway as she swerved to avoid a westbound vehicle. The Scion struck a grass embankment, skidded on its side and came to rest right side up.
