First responders work the scene of a head-on collision involving an SUV,
semi-truck and other cars Thursday.

A 16-year-old female faces criminal charges and remains hospitalized in the University of Tennessee Medical Center, according to Kentucky State Police. She was airlifted after her Mercedes SUV ran head-on into a coal truck and flipped multiple times Thursday.


Trooper Shane Jacobs, public affairs officer at KSP Post 10 in Harlan, said the teen is no longer in critical condition.

University of Tennessee Medical Center officials had no information on the passenger in the SUV, 20-year-old John Deaver, of Harrogate, Tenn., who was initially listed in critical condition.
