Kentucky State Police Post 15 is investigating a double-fatality collision that occurred in Clinton County over the weekend.
According to state police, 32-year-old Jonathan Farmer of Eubank was traveling north on US 127 in a 2001 Nissan Frontier when he attempted to pass a slower-moving vehicle. Farmer attempted to avoid a collision with the vehicle he was passing and lost control of his vehicle.
He then reportedly met a 2019 Chevrolet Trax traveling south on US 127 being operated by 72-year-old Deborah Scott of New Castle, Indiana. Scott attempted to avoid a collision but was unable to do so and struck the passenger side of Farmer’s vehicle.
A passenger in Farmer’s vehicle, 31-year-old Jacob Dick of Science Hill, was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Clinton County Coroner.
Farmer was transported to the Clinton County Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased by the Clinton County Coroner. Scott was transported to the University of Kentucky hospital with life-threatening injuries.
