2 Paducah Men Killed in Western Kentucky Crash
EDDYVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Two Paducah men have died in a crash in western Kentucky.
Kentucky State Police say the wreck happened on Kentucky 453, also known as The Trace Road, near the Lyon-Trigg county line, around 1 a.m. CST Wednesday. But because the vehicle’s lights were disabled in the crash, the wreck wasn’t discovered until daylight.
Pronounced dead at the scene were the driver, 55-year-old Michael King, and his passenger, 54-year-old Timothy Jarvis.
Police said in a news release that King dropped off the road for an unknown reason, overcorrected, left the roadway and hit several trees before turning over. The vehicle landed in a ravine on its roof.
