State Police are investigating a fatal car crash that killed a man last night near Liberty.

They said it happened around 6 p.m. just a mile north of Liberty on KY 49.

Troopers said Carles Kirtley, 41, was driving a 2007 GMC heading north. They said he lost control of his vehicle, flipped, and landed in the southbound lane.

A 1990 Dodge, driven by Andrew Richardson, 17, was headed south on KY 49. Police said as he drove around the curve, he hit Kirtley’s vehicle on the roof of the car.

According to troopers, Kirtley was thrown from his vehicle.

The Casey County Coroner said Kirtley died at the scene.

Troopers said Richardson was not injured and both drivers were wearing seatbelts.
