AUBURN, Ky. – One person is dead and another is in the hospital after a fatal wreck in Logan County this morning, police say.

The Logan County Sheriff’s office says it responded Monday at approximately 7:50 a.m. for a two-vehicle injury collision at the intersection of U.S. 68 and West Main Street in Auburn.

According to authorities, a 2011 Kia driven by Devon Blythe of Russellville was traveling eastbound on U.S. 68. At this time, police say a 2019 Jeep Cherokee stopped at the cross bar of the U.S. 68 and West Main Street intersection prior to turning left onto U.S. 68 to travel westbound.
