LEWIS COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- A three-vehicle crash Monday evening has closed a busy roadway and sent four people to the hospital, Lewis County 911 dispatchers say.

It happened at the Grayson spur of the AA Highway.

Dispatchers say two people were flown from the scene, one to Cabell Huntington Hospital and the other to St. Mary’s Medical Center, while two others were taken by ambulance to Southern Ohio Medical Center.

The Lewis County sheriff said the accident involved a white pickup truck, a van and another truck. He said the driver of the pickup truck was attempting to turn left onto the AA Highway toward Vanceburg. The truck and an eastbound van collided, and the van continued across the dividers and collided with another truck.

Two people in the second truck were airlifted, while another person from that same truck was taken by ambulance. One person from the van also was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet tweeted that the roadway could be closed for three or more hours in that area.

Several agencies were on the scene, including the Black Oak Fire Department, Vanceburg Police, the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department, Portsmouth Ambulance, Air Evac, and Maysville Police.
