(London, Ky.) -- On Tuesday April 19, 2011 at 7:40 PM the Kentucky State Police Post 11, London received a report of a single vehicle traffic crash, with injury, located on north KY 11 in Clay County.

Upon arrival Trooper Jack Riley determined that a white, 1995, Chevrolet, S-10, pickup was traveling southbound on KY 11 when it left the roadway, entered a ditch, then returned to the roadway where it overturned and came to rest on its top.

There were two occupants inside the vehicle at the time of the crash but due to conflicting verbal statements the identity of driver has not been determined at this time and will be pending further investigation and lab results.

The two occupants were:

Shawn T. Davidson, 26, of Oneida, KY who was not wearing a seat belt and received minor injuries. It is unknown if Davidson sought out medical treatment.
