A two-vehicle crash in Spencer County Monday morning killed a high school teacher and left second person injured.
According to WAVE3 in Louisville, Spencer County Sheriff Buddy Stump said the accident happened on Dale Lane (Hwy. 1319) just off Wilsonville Road in northern Spencer County around 6:45 a.m.
Sgt. Scott Felder of the Kentucky State Police said the preliminary investigation shows that a black Honda was heading westbound on Dale Lane when it went off the right side of the roadway. Felder said the Honda over corrected and was hit broadside by a Ford F-150 pickup heading in the other direction.
Shelby County coroner Jeff Ivers identified the victim as Brian Walters, 38, of Spencer County. Ivers said Walters was a teacher at Bullitt East High School in Mount Washington and was on his way to work at the time of the accident.
The driver of the truck was taken to University Hospital in Louisville by Spencer County EMS. His condition was not available.
A Kentucky State Police accident reconstruction team was called to the scene to investigate the crash.
