2 men dead, 2 others in critical condition after crash, shooting on New Cut Road

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Two men are dead and two others are in critical condition following a fatal crash and shooting on New Cut Road between Kenwood Hill and Iroquois Park.

LMPD officers were called to the 5300 block of New Cut Road just before 11 p.m. Monday where they found the two dead men inside a car that was wrecked on site, per LMPD spokesperson Elizabeth Ruoff. Their names have not been released.

Two other men inside the car had gunshot wounds and were transported to UofL Hospital in critical condition.

Witnesses said the crash could be heard for blocks, but it was not a surprising sound.

“They were flying down the street, they were screeching their tires and then I heard a bunch of gunshots,” Bill Vannatta, who lives near that stretch of New Cut Road, said. “Ten-15 automatic gunshots and you hear that all the time.”

Vannatta has lived in Louisville almost 73 years.

He has seen an especially deadly year get even deadlier and said he is worried for the city he has called home his whole life.

“It just seems like their out of control,” Vannatta said. “My wife doesn’t want to go anywhere by herself, [like] come out of Walmart or something. That stuff can happen anywhere.”

There are no suspects in custody and the LMPD Homicide Unit is investigating what led up to the shooting and crash.

Anyone with information can leave an anonymous tip for investigators at (502) 574-LMPD.
