Two killed by hit-and-run driver in Morgan County

Two people were killed in a hit-and-run accident just before 7:05 p.m. Saturday on Ky. 1010 near Ezel in Morgan County.

Kentucky State Police said Elizabeth Thornsberry, 41, of Ezel, and Tony Ross, 48, of Clearfield had been at Jaspers Bar in Maytown. Ross left Jaspers Bar on foot and was followed by Thornsberry in her 2001 Pontiac Bonneville, traveling east toward Ezel.

The vehicle is thought to be a full-size blue GMC pickup with damage to the front grill and bumper. As of Sunday afternoon, the truck and driver had not been found. Kentucky State Police in Morehead asked that anyone with information about the case call (606) 784-4127.
