Tennessee couple killed in central Kentucky crash

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - Emergency responders in central Kentucky had cleared the scene of a crash that killed a Tennessee woman when they found the body of her husband nearly 1,000 feet away.

According to The News-Enterprise in Elizabethtown, Kentucky State Police identified the victims as 75-year-old Claire R. Kahane and 78-year-old Charles S. Kahane of Nashville, Tenn.

Troopers said the couple's car was southbound on Interstate 65 on Thursday when it ran off the road, struck a tree and landed in a creek. Investigators said Charles Kahane had gotten out of the wrecked car and walked along the creek bank.

Hardin County Coroner Bill Lee said the cause of the crash was likely medically related. The driver was belted in and tire tracks indicated no effort to swerve or stop.
