VERSAILLES, Ky. (LEX 18) — Police were on the scene of a deadly crash early Saturday morning in Woodford County.

Authorities say two people were killed and another was injured in a crash that occurred about 3:30 a.m. on McCracken Pike in Versailles.

McCracken Pike was shut down in both directions as police and the coroner arrived on the scene.

The Versailles Assistant Police Chief tells LEX 18 only one vehicle was involved in the crash, but few other details were being immediately disclosed.

Police say they still are working to determine what caused the crash.

Neighbors awoken by the sirens say people often drive too fast on this windy roadway.

Edith Espinoza says this isn’t the first fatal crash on McCracken Pike and became emotional after learning of the loss of life tonight.

"God bless them. I think that’s about it," she said. "Been a lot more, I reckon so. I don’t know how many been killed. It’s horrible.”
