Spectator killed in crash at W. Ky. raceway



OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) — A spectator has been killed and two others injured during a crash at a raceway in western Kentucky.

Daviess County Coroner Jeff Jones told the Messenger-Inquirer (http://bit.ly/1akvJ3t) that 21-year-old Ryan Peters died Sunday night from injuries suffered when a car hit him after crashing at the Windy Hollow Raceway. Jones said several spectators in the pit area were struck.

Two others were taken to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital with injuries, but information on their conditions hasn't been released.

The Daviess County Sheriff's Department said emergency crews were called to the track after two cars apparently crashed and one hit the wall in a turn before striking spectators in the pit.

The sheriff's department is investigating.
