Kentucky State Police Post 9, in Pikeville, dispatched units after receiving a call Friday of a three-vehicle accident on Route 194 in the Kimper community of Pike County.
KSP says that a preliminary investigation indicates that a 2006 Western Star operated by 37-year-old Michael Sesco, of Inez, was traveling east on Route 194, when his vehicle crossed the centerline into the westbound lane and striking a 1992 Chevy Silverado driven by 32-year-old Shannon Rogers, of Prestonsburg.
According to KSP, Rogers’ vehicle was then struck by a second vehicle, a 1980 Ford pickup driven by 38-year-old Phillip Adams, of Kimper.
Rogers was pronounced dead at the scene by Pike County Coroner Russell Roberts. Leamon Bishop, a passenger in Rogers’ vehicle, and Phillip Adams, driver of the 1980 Ford, were both transported to Pikeville Medical Center for injuries.
This incident remains under investigation by Trooper Eddie Crum.
