According to police, 56-year-old Bryan Mangan, of South Bend, Ind., was driving a Ford Explorer northbound on I-75 near mile marker 91 around 7:30 p.m. when the he lost control of his vehicle. That caused Mangan to crash into a guardrail and collide with four other vehicles, before flipping and coming to a rest on its roof.

The Madison County Coroner pronounced 30-year-old Jeffrey Campbell dead on the scene. 22-year-old Meredith Buscher was rushed to UK Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries to short time later.

Paramedics also rushed 41-year-old Clifford Steinhauer to UK Hospital for his injuries. State Police weren’t immediately aware of his condition.

Mangan was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, state police said. He was also charged with driving on a suspended license.

Multiple lanes of I-75 remained closed for several hours Sunday night as police investigators reconstructed the accident.

Mangan is awaiting arraignment in the Madison County Detention Center.
