Date of News Release: 08/27/2013

Central City, KY (Muhlenberg County) -- The Kentucky State Police investigated a single-vehicle, injury collision that occurred on the Western Kentucky Parkway, at approximately the 63 mile-marker, on Monday, August 26, 2013, at 7:10 a.m.

The preliminary investigation revealed that Glenda Wedding, 49 of Lewisport, KY, was operating a 2009 Nissan Altima westbound on the parkway.
