On Saturday February 15, 2014 The Kentucky State Police Post 14 Ashland received a report of a two vehicle injury collision at the intersection of US 60 and KY 182 in Carter County. Troopers responded and began investigating the collision, in which Luevern Fultz was seriously injured and hospitalized for several weeks. During the course of the collision investigation it was revealed the collision was caused as a result of the wanton actions of Jennifer Duncan.
Prior to the accident occurring Jennifer and Claude Duncan had made arrangements to engage in an illegal drug transaction involving several pills and several hundred dollars. Arrangements were made to meet Luevern Fultz in Grayson and complete the transaction. Upon obtaining the pills from Jennifer and Claude Duncan, Fultz left the area and was pursued by the Duncan's. It was determined the Duncan's pursued Flutz for several miles throughout Carter County. At the intersection of US 60 and KY 182 Jennifer Duncan drove her vehicle into the vehicle being operated by Fultz.
