Child Injured in Truck Accident on Alexandria Pike in Cold Spring, KY

Cold Spring, KY — October 2, 2022, a juvenile was critically injured when a semi-truck hit a car on Alexandria Pike in Cold Spring.

Authorities say the incident happened around 6:00 p.m. on the 4000 block of Alexandra Pike near St. Michael Drive. Preliminary investigation suggests only that a tractor-trailer was passing through the area when it somehow crashed into a Subaru Forester. After the impact the big rig hit a low concrete wall, traveled up a hill, and came to rest in a parking lot.

A child in the Subaru was entrapped until responders arrived and freed them. They were transported to an area hospital in critical condition. No other injuries were reported.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Cold Spring Truck Accident on Alexandria Pike

It's not wholly clear what happened here; early reports can only really say that the truck and a car crashed along the highway. That could have happened for a variety of reasons, of course, but the fact that a young person was critically injured means it's important to get to the bottom of things.

Having said that, I admit to some reservations about exactly how much effort police will really put into figuring that out. That's not to bash their hard work, only to recognize something people don't always consider: Police are plagued by competing priorities, low budgets, understaffing, and many other problems that mean they can't always devote the time or care needed to find all the facts of a wreck. They'll put together a rough picture of what happened, but may overlook subtler details that would make a lot of difference when it's time to hold someone responsible for the damage done.

Obviously an incomplete or incorrect police report can cause a lot of trouble for victims and families seeking answers and help after a crash like this. That's why I often recommend that independent experts step in to connect any remaining dots the police may have missed. The most important thing is to find the facts for the people who need them; anything beyond that would depend on what those facts turn out to be.
