HARLAN, Ky. (AP) - A husband and wife died Monday when a truck
loaded with asphalt overturned onto their car in eastern Kentucky,
authorities said.
Randall Bailey, 53, and Betty Bailey, 52, both of Bledsoe, were
pronounced dead near U.S 421 and Kentucky 221 near Bledsoe shortly
after noon Friday, Kentucky State Police said in a statement.
Police said Bailey allowed a truck with a flatbed trailer
carrying a bulldozer to enter U.S. 421 heading south from Kentucky
221, but a dump truck, driven by Bennie Wooten Jr., 53, of Baxter,
was unable to stop and swerved to to avoid a collision with the
Bailey car.
The dump truck struck the bulldozer, dumping its load on the
Bailey's vehicle and partially landing on it, police said.
