Cumberland County Crash Leaves 1 Dead, 3 Injured

Aug 11, 2014

Investigators say alcohol may have been a contributing factor in an early-morning crash Monday on Kentucky 90 in Cumberland County.  

Kentucky State Police say 30-year-old April Thompson of Burkesville, who was driving a Chevy van, crossed the center line and hit a semi-truck head-on.  Thompson died at the scene.

The 18-wheeler was being driven by Robert Nissley on Monticello. The semi actually wound up in a ditch as Nissley tried to avoid the collision.  He, along with two teenagers in the truck, were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
