Investigation underway after deadly crash involving tractor

GUTHRIE, Ky. (WTVQ)- State Police are investigating a deadly crash Wednesday involving a farm tractor.

KSP says the crash happened Monday on Old Railroad Lane, about six miles north of Guthrie.

Investigators say 69-year-old Aden Coblentz was driving a Ford Farm Tractor southbound when 37-year-old Maurice Smith was driving a 2006 Buick Rendezvous northbound when he hit the left outer tire of the tractor. As a result, the tractor went into a ditch.

The Todd County coroner pronounced Coblentz dead on scene.

KSP would like to warn drivers to be aware it is harvesting season, and farmers are going to be on the roadway. Drivers should be aware of their surroundings and know there is a high likelihood they may encounter farm equipment during their travels.
