They say the driver of a 2003 GMC Terrain passenger car was traveling south on Kentucky Route 377 and lost control of his vehicle, and struck the end of a concrete bridge. No other vehicles were involved.

The driver was identified as a 75-year-old male and pronounced deceased at the scene. Two female passengers were airlifted to a healthcare facility in West Virginia.

They say the identity of the deceased will not be released until notification of the next of kin has been made.
