Kentucky State Police (KSP) Post 15 Troopers responded to a three-vehicle injury collision on US 150 in the Fredericksburg Community of Washington County on Sunday, July at approximately 5:46PM EST.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Brian Blanford, age 45 of Lebanon, was traveling east on US 150 in a 2016 Chevrolet Traverse when he crossed the center line of the roadway and sideswiped a 2008 GMC Sierra traveling west on US 150 that was operated by Justin Phillips, age 36 of Springfield.  After the first collision, Mr. Blanford’s vehicle continued to travel further into the westbound lane.  Mr. Blanford’s vehicle then collided head-on with a 2007 Toyota Solara operated by Logan Dailey, age 31 of Louisville.
