Two people were injured in a crash in Warren County, Kentucky and authorities said drugs could be involved.  

Warren County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the call for a two-car collision in the 200 block of Leayou Road in Alvaton, Ky.  

When they got there, deputies said they found both cars on the left shoulder of the road and a woman lying on the ground with injuries.  

Police said the woman, identified as 40-year-old Bathsheba Burke, was driving her car when she crossed the middle of the roadway and crashed into another car, driven by 49-year-old James Craft, head-on.  

Deputies said a preliminary investigation showed that Burke was in possession of suspected meth as well as other possible narcotics.  

Burke was flown to a Tennessee hospital and Craft was treated at the scene.  

Officials said narcotics are suspected to a factor in the crash and the case will be presented to a Warren County Grand Jury at a later date.
