A three-car pileup snagged early school traffic last Tuesday. The roadway was slick due to recent rain and may have been a contributing factor, according to Hodgenville Police Chief Steve Johnson.
About 7:35 a.m. Oct. 14, Robert B. Merryman of Buffalo, was driving a 1999 pickup in the southbound lane on Ky. 1618 near Hodgenville Elementary School.
The truck slid into the rear of a 2014 Jeep Wrangler driven by Lois Kromer of Hodgenville. Her passenger was Seth Kromer.
