A single-vehicle accident Sunday morning on Dawson Springs Road claimed the life of an 18-year old Crofton resident.
Christian County Sheriff’s Sgt. Justin Meacham investigated the incident and says 18-year old Chase Parker of Crofton was headed north a few minutes after 7:30 a.m. when his vehicle veered off the left side of the roadway just north of KY 800 and struck a tree.
Parker had to be extricated from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.
He was wearing his seat belt and alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the incident.
