Halloween was relatively quiet as far as pranks were concerned, but

there were several accidents that kept local officials busy throughout the

night.

The accidents included an injury collision on Highway 3106 that resulted

in two local children being flown to a Lexington hospital. Later on Friday,

a local man was airlifted to Lexington following an ATV accident, where he

later died from his injuries.

The two vehicle collision occurred at approximately 7:39 p.m., according

to the Wayne County Sheriff's Department. A 2005 Chevrolet Equinox, driven

by Chad Grider, 32, of Monticello, was traveling from Kings Highway across

Highway 3106 to Trueblood Drive when it collided with a 1999 Saturn, driven

by Mark Feduccia, 47, of Monticello.

Officials stated that five people were injured in the crash and all five

were transported to the Wayne County Hospital by EMS crews. Two children, a

boy and a girl who were passengers in the Feduccia vehicle, were flown from

the Wayne County Hospital to the University of Kentucky Medical Center. No

further details on their conditions were available at press time.

Wayne County EMS and the Monticello Fire Department assisted the

Sheriff's Department at the scene.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Department was also called to the scene of an

ATV accident at 11:33 p.m. Friday. The accident occurred on the Sam Brummett

Road, and one local man, Jeffrey Abner, 25, was flown to a Lexington

hospital where he later died.

The Monticello Fire Department responded to several injury accidents and

stood by for helicopters at the hospital, but besides that had very few

fire-related calls on Friday night. Fire Chief Steve Ferrell said volunteers

with the department stayed at the station throughout the evening, and

responded to a few minor calls.

No major incidents were reported.
