2 Killed, Others Seriously Injured In Rollover Crash

Posted: Updated:

GRAYSON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Two people were killed and others were seriously injured Saturday when a Nissan Armada carrying six people flipped several times on Western Kentucky Parkway.

Police say Charles Martin, 43, of Benton was traveling eastbound when he left the road briefly, over-corrected, hit an embankment and then a ditch, sending the vehicle rolling "multiple times."

Police say none of the six people in the vehicle was wearing a seat belt. Several people were ejected from the vehicle, and Martin was partially ejected, police said.

Martin was pronounced dead at the crash scene. Melanie Wiles of Benton was transported to an area hospital, where she later was pronounced dead.

Three other passengers were airlifted to area hospitals with serious injuries.

Grayson County Sheriff's police continue to investigate the cause of the crash.
