One person in Meade crash dies

An Indiana man who was thrown from a car when it flipped Wednesday in Meade County has died.

State police said Nicholas Holden Decker, 19, of Corydon died Thursday from his injuries.

Decker and Christina Kennon, 18, both were thrown from the car when it ran off the road and flipped several times Wednesday afternoon. Neither were wearing seat belts.

Both were flown to University of Louisville Hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said in a news release. Kennon remained in critical condition Thursday afternoon.

The wreck happened on Ky. 79, about half a mile from the Breckinridge County line.

The news release said the 1991 Acura Integra was northbound when it left the road "for unknown reasons" and rolled.
