Mr. Donovan quickly maneuvered his vehicle back into the southbound lane, lost control of the vehicle, and reentered the northbound lane striking Alice Collins' vehicle, a 1998 Dodge truck, head-on. Daniel Donovan was transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries, and later transferred to the University of Louisville Hospital. Alice Collins was transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
