LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Police say two people have died after the car they were in slid off an icy highway in western Kentucky.
It happened as a winter storm blanketed large portions of central and western Kentucky late Monday and early Tuesday, leaving a treacherous mix of snow and ice.
State police say the car overturned early Tuesday after going off the road four miles east of Caneyville when the driver lost control of the vehicle.
Police say 19-year-old Haley Scott of Muldraugh and 23-year-old Jennifer Crow of Smyrna, Ga., were thrown from the car. Neither was
wearing a seat belt.
Police say the driver of the vehicle was 23-year-old Charles Jason Hutchins of Hopkinsville. He was wearing a seat belt and was not hurt.
