A young girl has died as a result of a crash in Barren County on Saturday night, according to Kentucky State Police.
In a press release, KSP said Troopers responded on behalf of the Barren County Sheriff's Office on May 9, 2020 at approximately 8:00 P.M., who requested assistance with a single vehicle collision near the 2500 block of Coral Hill Road in Barren County.
KSP reported that Christopher M. McCoy (32) of Glasgow was traveling east on Coral Hill Road in a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado. McCoy was unable to negotiate a curve and his vehicle briefly exited the right shoulder of the roadway, then over-corrected upon reentering the roadway, which caused his vehicle to cross both lanes of travel and exit off the left shoulder of the road, Troopers said. KSP reported that McCoy's vehicle struck multiple trees before coming to rest.
According to the release, Christopher M. McCoy was transported to T.J. Samson Hospital to be treated for injuries sustained in the collision. A 10 year old female passenger was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Barren County Coroner. The passenger was restrained at the time of the collision, KSP said.
The investigation is on going and being led by Trooper Michael Waggener. He was assisted on the scene by Barren/Metcalfe EMS, Barren County Coroner, Hiseville Fire Department, Barren County Sheriff's Department and other KSP Personnel.
