GLASGOW, Ky. – Authorities say one man is dead following a collision between two vehicles in Barren County on Friday.

Troopers say they responded just after 7:30 p.m. to the 5.5 mile marker of Scottsville Road near the intersection of Browning School Road, an area in Glasgow.

The Kentucky State Police says it learned through a preliminary investigation that Chadwick Maxey, 50, of Gallatin, Tennessee, was driving a 2013 GMC truck southbound on Scottsville Road. KSP says this is when Maxey crossed the center line and entered the opposite northbound lane.

Maxey’s vehicle then struck a 2001 GMC truck traveling northbound, authorities say.

Authorities say Maxey was pronounced dead on the scene by the Barren County Coroner’s Office.

The driver of the 2001 GMC, along with a passenger of that vehicle, were flown to TriStar Skyline Medical Center in Nashville. The current condition of these two individuals is unknown.

The investigation remains ongoing.
