** ORIGNAL STORY **

Officials are on the scene of a deadly crash in Martin County.

We’re told it happened early Sunday morning on Old KY Route 3, also known as Rockcastle Road, in Inez.

The coroner tells WYMT one car was involved and three people were inside. One of those was flown to Pikeville Medical Center for their injuries and another refused treatment at the scene. The third victim, a young girl, did not survive.

“The car went on its top, pretty bad crash,” said Martin County Coroner Chris Todd.

Kentucky State Police reconstructed the crash site to determine what caused the crash. WYMT talked to Terry Maynard who lives only a few feet from the crash.

“No, not as long as I lived here and I’ve been here probably eight-year,” he said. “No, we’ve had nothing like this. I just hate it because someone lost their life and others was hurt.”

Kentucky State Police is investigating the incident.

We will keep you updated.
