Tennessee couple killed in Hardin County crash

  ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) – A Tennessee couple was killed Thursday afternoon in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 65 in Hardin County.

Kentucky State Police said they were notified just before 4 p.m. Thursday that a southbound car had run off the interstate and slammed into a tree. Troopers found the 2006 Toyota Avalon in a creek bed adjacent to the interstate at the 98 mile marker. 

The driver, Claire R. Kahane, 75, of Nashville, TN, was found dead inside the vehicle. Further investigation revealed evidence of a passenger having been inside the car at the time of the crash. A search was launched, and at approximately 6:38 p.m., firefighters discovered the body of Charles S. Kahane, 78, nearly 1,000 feet south of the crash site lying face up in the creek bed. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

KSP was continuing to investigate the cause of the crash.
