Well Known Scott County Teenager Killed In Crash

The Scott County community of Stamping Ground is mourning the loss of a well known teen.
19-year old Jeremy Marks was killed after a car crash on KY 227 just south of Stamping Ground Friday. Police say Marks lost control of the SUV he was driving, hit a tree, and was thrown into a pasture about 50 feet away. This loss is hitting the community hard because the college student was very involved in public life. He was a former Scott County High basketball player and at his church he was a deacon and superintendent of the Sunday school.
One of Marks' friends, Lea Hammond spoke out about the young man, “He will never be forgotten. He was an amazing guy. He was perfect, perfect in everyway that he could be perfect."
Marks graduated last year from Scott County High School and was a member of the 2007 state basketball championship team.
There is no word on when Marks' funeral will be held.
