One killed in traffic crash near Versailles

A two-vehicle crash Thursday evening near the Bluegrass Parkway left a man dead and a woman injured.

A man driving a 1997 Nissan Quest was southbound on Ky. 33, or Troy Pike, when he slammed on his brakes to avoid a vehicle and slid sideways, according to a Versailles police department press release. He crossed the center line, and a 2007 GMC Yukon struck the Nissan on the passenger side.

The Nissan driver was not wearing a seat belt and died at the scene. The Yukon driver was wearing a seat belt and had minor injuries.

Alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the accident.
