Crash in Jeffersontown kills 1

JEFFERSONTOWN, KY (WAVE) – The Jefferson County Coroner's Office has identified the man killed in a single car accident early Tuesday as a 21-year-old Jeffersontown resident.

Huber Mendoza Lopez died from multiple blunt force injuries he suffered in the crash.

According to Major Chris McIntyre of the Jeffersontown Police Department, the crash in the 8900 block of Taylorsville Road near Tree Lane was reported at 1:37 a.m. by a resident of a nearby apartment complex.

Officers found that a car had left the road and struck a concrete embankment. Lopez, the lone occupant of the car, was pronounced dead at the scene.

While McIntyre said driving conditions in the area appeared to be perfect at the time of the crash, the investigation by the accident reconstruction team is continuing and nothing has been ruled out.
