    By Corey Elam,


    SOMERSET, Ky. ( FOX 56 ) — A Somerset woman was airlifted to Lexington after being trapped under a concrete truck on Friday.

    According to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO), deputies were dispatched around 9:14 a.m. on Friday to the area of KY-192 in eastern Pulaski County in response to a report of a crash involving “a concrete truck and a Hyundai Santa Fe.”

    A preliminary investigation showed that Peggy Lockaby, 66, was driving west on KY-192 when a concrete truck being driven by Levi Perkins, 29, backed out of a nearby driveway and into the path of Lockaby, authorities said.

    PCSO said as Perkins backed out of the driveway, Lockaby’s SUV ran underneath it, causing her to be trapped beneath the concrete truck.

    Lockaby was extracted from her SUV by emergency service personnel and airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center, according to authorities. PCSO said in a news release that “the extent of her injuries is unknown at this time.”


    Perkins was not injured in the crash, and authorities said there were no passengers in the concrete truck.

    Authorities said the crash remains under investigation. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office at (606) 678-5145.
