By  | 

WARREN COUNTY, Ky (WBKO) -- A neighbor witnessing this weekend's fatal accident, speaks out about her traumatic experience.

"I walked out to see what was going on and when I got here, I seen the car sitting right here. When I walked on further, there was a body laying here and they covered it up with a sheet. Next thing I knew, the mother and the sister had gotten the news and came out here," said a neighbor who witnessed the accident.

A neighbor (who chose not to go on camera) says the area was flooded with police, ambulances and fire trucks.

The Warren County Sheriff's Department responded to the 7000 block of Smiths Grove-Scottsville Road, around eleven o'clock Saturday night.

Authorities say the 2004 White Acura, carrying three young men, drove off of the right side of the road. The car then hit numerous trees, and flipped, before it landed in its final resting place.

Authorities say the driver of the vehicle, 27 year old Andrew Hall, was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. 20 year old passenger, Lucas Turner, was also pronounced dead at the scene. A second passenger, 20 year old Dillon Hart, was life flighted from the accident.

"The only survivor was flown to Skyline Medical, in Nashville, where as of Sunday morning (around 9:30) was listed in stable condition," said Stephen Harmon, Warren County Sheriff's Department.

“I had nightmares. I couldn't go to sleep because it hurt so bad. Just to see this person laying here and the mother and daughter in tears," said a neighbor who witnessed the accident.

The neighbor says she continues to grieve for the family.

"I would hate to know that I've lost two family members in one night. Even though there were two deaths, there was still one who can tell what happened," said a neighbor who witnessed the accident.

The Warren County Sheriff's Office says it's undetermined whether speed, alcohol or drugs are factors in the accident. A neighbor says it's not uncommon for people to drive over the speed limit.

Officers say they are unsure if the young men were wearing seat belts and the investigation is ongoing.
