State Police say rain contributed to an accident in Horse Cave that claimed the life of a four year old child.

Lawrence Bennett was killed when the vehicle driven by his father was struck head on by another vehicle on Kentucky 218.

Authorities say a Chevy Tahoe driven by 43-year-old Leslie Teague of Greensburg hydroplaned and slid sideways into a car driven by Gerald Bennett. Lawrence Bennett was pronounced dead at Caverna Hospital around noon.

Five-year-old Kaitlyn Bennett was taken to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville and Gerald was flown to Vanderbilt. Teague was treated at Caverna Hospital and released.
