(RINEYVILLE, KY) -- On Sunday, April 14, 2013 at approximately 5:13 a.m. ET Tpr. Anthony Hardin responded to an injury crash near the 1051 block of Rineyville School Road. Upon his arrival Tpr. Hardin discovered the driver, Justin Claxton, 21, from Hastings, Florida was unconscious and unresponsive. The passenger, 22-year-old Amanda D. Jenkin from Vine Grove, KY was conscious, but seriously injured and trapped due to the position of the driver and damage to her side of the vehicle.
