McCreary County

Two young men were struck and killed by a train in McCreary County just a day after a 14-year-old was killed by a train in Madison County. Sheriff Gus Skinner told the Lexington Herald-Leader the 20 year olds, whom he did not identify, were walking on the tracks at Whitley City at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday when they were struck from behind by a Norfolk Southern train.

Some southeastern Kentucky residents say campaigns on a vote that could allow alcohol sales in the community have taken a negative turn. McCreary County voters head to the polls next Tuesday to decide the controversial issue.
