Darren Doyle, story:
A single vehicle collision has resulted in a fatality this evening on I-65, according to KY State Police.
KSP reported that they responded to Interstate 65 near the 26 mile marker in Warren County on Friday evening around 5:30 pm.
KSP said that Gerald W. Andres (69) of Floyds Knob, KY was operating a 1955 Chevrolet passenger car traveling southbound on Interstate 65 near the 26 mile marker. According to witnesses, Andres lost control of his vehicle and exited off the right shoulder of the southbound lane of travel. Upon exiting the roadway, the vehicle struck an earth embankment causing it to overturn. Andres, who was unrestrained at the time of the collision, was ejected from the vehicle. Gerald Andres was pronounced deceased on the scene by the Warren County Coroner’s Office.
Traffic was rerouted to Louisville Road which caused major traffic delays on the north side of Bowling Green. The Annual Tri-Five Nationals event is currently being held at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, an event that highlights 1955-56-57 Chevrolets; cars, trucks, and Corvettes.
The investigation continues and is currently being led by Trooper Aaron Harris. He was assisted on scene by other KSP personnel, Alvaton Fire Department, and Warren County Coroner’s Office.
