Kentucky State Police say an early morning accident killed one person and injured another. The crash occurred at about 4:30 a.m. Monday on Highway 41 in Henderson.
Police say 36-year-old Joseph Revlett of Owensboro was traveling south on US 41 when his vehicle stalled in the right lane of the southbound Twin Bridge. Revlett began pushing his car from the rear while passenger 25-year-old Casey Thurman of Owensboro pushed from the driver’s door to help steer the stalled car.
Investigators say 46-year-old Arthur Kampf of Mt. Vernon was also traveling on US 41 on the southbound bridge in a 2015 Ford F-450 truck. Kampf was unable to see the stalled vehicle in time and ran into the rear killing Revlett.
The collision threw Thurman away from the car and into the left lane of the southbound bridge. Thurman was rushed to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville where she sustained injuries to her shoulder, arm, and legs.
Kampf was using his seatbelt and was not injured.
