Div. of Water Chief Seriously Hurt In Car Wreck

The head of the Kentucky Division of Water is in serious condition after an early morning (Thursday) car accident.

Sandy Gruzesky was en route to the Lexington airport when her car struck a tree on Iron Works Pike.  She was headed ultimately to Washington, D.C. to testify at a U.S. House Natural Resources Committee hearing on a proposed bill to regulate coal ash.  Gruzesky is being treated at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.  There’s no word yet on her prognosis.  But a Division spokeswoman says her condition is extremely serious.
