RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) – Two people have died in central Kentucky and a third person is charged with aggravated drunken driving after a five-vehicle wreck on Interstate 75.
Kentucky State Police identified the people who died as 22-year-old Meredith L. Buscher of Richmond and 30-year-old Jeffrey Campbell of Louisville. The Lexington Herald-Leader says they were struck Sunday evening after leaving their cars to try to help others in the crash.
Police arrested 56-year-old Bryan M. Mangan of South Bend, Ind. He is also charged with driving on a suspended license and was taken to the Madison County jail.
Police said Buscher and Campbell had left their cars to assist others when they were struck by another vehicle.
Another man, 41-year-old Clifford H. Steinhauer of Fort Thomas, was in serious condition Monday at University of Kentucky hospital.
