A 17-year-old driver and two passengers, ages 16 and 11, were treated and released from Spring View Hospital on Monday after their vehicle was struck from the rear.

The accident occurred four miles south of Springfield on KY-55 at 7:55 a.m.
Kayla Wimstett, 17, of Willisburg, was stopped in the northbound lane, waiting to turn left, when her 2004 Pontiac was struck from behind.

The collision was with a 2011 Ford Taurus operated by Kelly Chappell, 45, of Halifax, Va.

According to the report, both drivers and all three passengers—including a 58-year-old passenger with Chappell—were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident.

The incident is still under investigation.
