Edgar Marksberry (69) of Morgantown, KY, was traveling North on US 231 in his 2003 GMC Envoy.

Mr. Marksberry attempted several abrasive maneuvers to regain control of his vehicle, but was unable to regain control. Mr. Marksberry's vehicle then exited the roadway and overturned multiple times which ejected Mr. Marksberry from the vehicle.
He was pronounced deceased on scene by Warren County Coroner Kevin Kirby. Trooper Larry Davis is leading the investigation and he is being assisted by Trooper Mike Hatler.
