It looked bad and one of the officers at the connector said it was bad. My thoughts are with whomever was in the SUV.

State Journal staff report
29 minutes ago

Traffic was idle for more than an hour on the westbound lanes of the East-West Connector about half a mile West of the U.S. 60 overpass because of a flipped vehicle.

Police could not comment on any details of the wreck because they were still working the scene. The accident was reported around 6 p.m. today and lanes were reopened around 7:30.

Frankfort fire and police departments were on site and at least one ambulance rushed from the scene. An official on scene said there were no fatalities as of 7:30 p.m.

Check Sunday's State Journal for the full story.

Thomas Guarneri and Alexis Blankenship were in the car. Alexis is at Frankfort Regional and is okay. Thomas was airlifted to UK. No word on his condition

We were stuck in traffic behind the wreck. The Toyota Sequoia went over on it's top, but I don't see how it would have flipped more than that. We didn't see no air ambulance, but one regular ambulance did head back to Versailles Rd rather than heading west to Frankfort Regional.

It is very tragic to see so many young people involved in accidents. It seems to me that ever graduating class must endure a loss or near loss if a class-mate. Sending up prayers to the victims and their families

Thomas' Uncle posted the following on Facebook:

"Thomas is at UK and in very good hands. He is alert and the doctors are checking him out from head to toe. Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts, and hopefully it won't be too long before he is tearing up the dance floor like the Thomas we all know and love. I will let all of you know how he's improving very soon."

I was the first car to the scene after it happened, i came around the curve and saw the car upside down in the road and said oh my god, i stopped, jumped out and ran up to the car, he did have bad head trauma and was trapped under the car , another person which was a girl was also trapped inside but i couldn't see if she was hurt, 2 other girls got out and looked ok but was in very bad shock, i felt helpless but to give them comfort that help was on the way, they were all alive. I hope and pray that everyone comes out ok. I was shaking and in shock myself for what i saw and can't stop thinking about it.

What caused the wreck? Texting? driving too fast? not paying attention?

Why do people always assume because they were teenagers that they were texting, driving too fast or being careless?? Did you ever happen to think that that maybe someone was coming over into their lane or an animal ran out in front of them??? It could have been any number of things!! And why does it matter to you?? So you can run and gossip?? They are all ok and that is all that matters REGARDLESS OF HOW IT HAPPENED!!!!

I don't know those KIDS so I have no reason to gossip. If it happened for reason YOU stated then they are inexperienced drivers and should have to go through a training course for such conditions! if I had my druthers, the driving age would be bumped to 21 and cell phones outlawed PERIOD because even the most safest and experienced drivers cause wrecks by talking on the phone because they can't multitask. In addition to that people over the age of 60 should be required to re-take their driving test because doing 50 on the interstate can cause a wreck just as easily as going 55 in a 25 zone.
