Head-on crash kills both drivers in Wayne County

A man and a woman were killed Monday when their vehicles collided head-on in Monticello, officials said.

The Wayne County coroner's office identified the victims as Betty Burnett, 66, and Mark Hodges, 50, both of Wayne County.

According to authorities, the wreck happened just before 6 p.m. Monday on the Ky. 90 bypass in Monticello.

Officials said Burnett was driving southwest on the bypass when, for reasons not yet known, her vehicle crossed the center line, colliding head-on with Hodges' vehicle. Hodges and Burnett were pronounced dead shortly afterward.

An investigation is continuing.

An autopsy on Burnett is scheduled at the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort.
