A major winter storm is on the way to the bluegrass state. Local high water issues are possible early Wednesday and that will be followed up by heavy snow and sleet. Significant accumulations are likely Wednesday night and Thursday.
A traffic collision in Boyle County has resulted in the deaths of two people who were riding in the same vehicle.
Boyle County Deputy Coroner Mike Wilder says 58-year-old Howard
Myers died at the scene of the 6:10 p.m. crash Monday night and Anna Martin died while being airlifted to the University of Kentucky Hospital.
Both were residents of Junction City.
Authorities say the driver of the other vehicle escaped with minor injuries.
Wilder says the collision occurred on Kentucky 300 at Yates Road, two miles west of Junction City and six miles southwest of Danville.
