In the last week in Central Kentucky, there have been at least four accidents involving campers. Two of them, the campers came loose from the vehicles that were towing them.
One of the accidents resulted in a fatality.
WKYT News Reporter Monique Blair spoke with Bluegrass RV Technician Jack Crowe about the safety measures a camper owner should take before hitting the road, saying that every vehicle has a certain weight limit that it can tow.
