Two critical after high-speed crash on State Street
MURRAY — Two people were hospitalized in critical condition Monday night after their speeding car crashed into two other vehicles, police said.
The two people were in a BMW headed south on State Street and travelling well above the 45 mph speed limit when they hit another car that turned left in front of them, Murray Police Lt. Doug Roberts said.
The BMW hit with such force that it spun out and hit a parked car and a pole on the side of the street, Roberts said. The driver in the second car was not significantly injured and the parked car was empty.
The crash, which occurred about 8:30 p.m. near 4800 South, closed lanes in both directions for more than an hour as investigators reviewed and cleared the scene.
There was no clear evidence of DUI at the scene and investigators were trying to determine how fast the BMW was going when it crashed, Roberts said.
