One Killed in a Single Vehicle Collision on Adams Road
Date of News Release: 01/18/2010
(Madisonville, Ky.) -- Mr. Edward D. West was southbound on Adams Road. As he approached the intersection of Adams Road and Mimms Road, he failed to negotiate the curve due to the dense fog and limited visibility. Mr. West drove through the intersection striking a ditch which caused the tractor trailer he was operating to overturn an unknown number of times. The vehicle came to final rest on the driver's side. Mr. West was trapped inside the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene by the Todd County Coroner, Gerald Barnett. The next of kin was notified by the coroner.
