One person was killed and four were injured in a wreck in Calloway County yesterday morning.
The report from Kentucky State Police says 27-year old James Sasse of Murray was attempting to pass a vehicle driven by 66-year old Danny Pittman of New Concord around 11:15am on State Route 121 South.
Sasse then noticed an oncoming vehicle and attempted to get back into the right lane. Police say he then struck the rear of Pittman’s vehicle, sending it off the road and into a tree.
Pittman’s vehicle continued back onto the roadway and struck a vehicle driven by 42-year old Gerald Cowley of New Concord head-on.
Pittman was pronounced dead on the scene, while his passenger—62-year old Patsy Pittman—was taken by ambulance to Murray-Calloway Hospital. Sasse and his passenger were also taken to the local hospital, as was Cowley.
The wreck remains under investigation by Trooper Michael Bennett.
