Vevay Man Killed In Two-Vehicle Accident Near Warsaw

The accident happened at the intersection of US 42 and US 127 late Thursday morning.

(Warsaw, Ky.) – A Vevay man is dead after a two-vehicle accident in Gallatin County.

Kentucky State Police and Gallatin County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the crash at the intersection of U.S. 42 and U.S. 127, about four miles east of Warsaw, around 11:17 a.m. Thursday.

The impact resulted in the death of the dump truck driver, Marcus A. Galbreath, 35, of Vevay. No other injuries were reported.
