Marion County Fatal Collision

Date of News Release: 05/10/2014

(Lebanon, KY.) - Tpr. Logan Richardson is investigating a collision that occurred on Friday, May 9, 2014 at approximately 2:34 PM EDT on US 68 just inside the west side city limits of Lebanon. 36-year-old Elizabeth Pittman, of Lebanon, was traveling east on US 68, operating a 2001 4-door Nissan, when she attempted to pass another east bound vehicle. She was unable to complete the pass due to oncoming traffic and steered back into her lane of travel. Pittman lost control of the vehicle, dropped off the eastbound shoulder, returned to the roadway and struck a 1999 Semi in the rear of the trailer.

The Semi was operated by 58-year-old Michael Brock, of Berea, KY. Brock was belted at the time of the collision and was not injured. Pittman was wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Marion County Coroner. The roadway was closed for several hours as investigators reconstructed the collision.

Tpr. Richardson was assisted at the scene by Marion County Fire, EMS and Rescue.
