Bremen, KY (Muhlenberg County) – The Kentucky State Police is investigating a single-vehicle, injury-collision that occurred on KY 181, approximately two miles south of Bremen, on Saturday, December 12, at 9:00 a.m.

The preliminary investigation revealed that William K. Smith, 26, Bremen, was operating a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck southbound on KY 181 when the passenger side tires dropped off the right shoulder of the roadway.

It overturned and came to rest on the driver’s side.

Mr. Smith was flown by PHI Air Medical to Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, TN for treatment. He was not wearing a seatbelt.
