GALLATIN COUNTY, Ky. - A Murfreesboro man was killed and another person was injured in a car crash in northern Kentucky over the weekend.
Kentucky State Police said 51-year-old Jeffrey Givens, of Murfreesboro, was driving a truck hauling a horse trailer on Interstate 71 in Gallatin County when he veered off the road around 8:30 a.m. Sunday.
Investigators said he tried to get back on the road, but jack-knifed, hit a guard rail and overturned.
Givens was killed instantly.
His passenger, 53-year-old Tim Taylor of La Vergne, was extricated from the vehicle, and taken to University of Cincinnati Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Both Givens and Taylor were wearing their seatbelts, according to investigators.
Three horses that were in the trailer were also killed in the crash.
