KNOX COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT/WYMT) - Kentucky State Police confirm five people are dead following a crash near Flat Lick Monday.

Police say the crash happened around 5:30 p.m. on U.S. 25E, when a car, driven by 31-year-old David Vanderpool of Williamsburg, lost control, went airborne over a median, and hit a southbound car head on.

Officers say 61-year-old Gary Caldwell and 58-year-old Patricia Caldwell, both of Putney, along with 29-year-old Julia Robinson and 30-year-old Brent Robinson, from Bradenton, Florida were in the second car.

All five people in both cars were killed.

U.S. 25E was closed for several hours, but reopened around 10 p.m. Monday.
