LEBANON, KY (Sun 12 Feb 2017) - Tpr. Chase Willis is investigating a collision that occurred today at 1:45pmET, on KY 527, 1 mile south of Loretto.

43-year-old Steven Edlin, of Loretto, was operating a northbound Chevy truck on KY 527 when he attempted to pass a 1997 Ford fire truck that was stopped in the road behind a 2007 Ford Fusion that had stopped in the southbound lane to turn left.
