Kentucky soldier dies in crash

A Kentucky soldier is dead after a high-speed crash. He was just recently welcomed home after spending a year in Afghanistan.

24-year old Daniel Westfall died in a crash early Sunday morning along U.S. 27 in Harrison County.

Police say he lost control of his car and slid through a field, flipping several times before coming to rest about a quarter-mile from the road.

Westfall was deployed with the 201st Engineer Battalion which just returned from Afghanistan in March.

Sunday night friends and family remembered his service to his country.

Visitation will be Tuesday from five until eight at Ware Funeral Home in Cynthiana. His funeral will take place Thursday in West Virginia
