One dies in single-vehicle crash in Russell

A fatal crash that occurred in the Russell neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky in the early morning of May 17 resulted in the death of 62-year-old Henry Frazier.

The accident occurred at around 5 a.m. at the intersection of Magazine and Dr. W.J. Hodge streets. According to reports, it involved two moving vehicles and one parked car. Frazier, a passenger inside an Oldsmobile that sustained critical damage, was found by emergency medical responders no longer breathing inside the vehicle. Both of the drivers were injured in the accident.

The crash also caused irreparable damage to the parked car, a Jeep that belonged to a resident of the neighborhood, Valeria Harrison.

Investigators are currently trying to determine who among the drivers bear responsibility for the accident, with Louisville Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Dwight Mitchell saying, “speed appears to be a factor and we haven’t ruled out any factors at this point.”
