Driver of Saturday morning fatal accident identified

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The man killed in a accident around 2:30 a.m. Saturday on Taylorsville Road at Bolling Brook Drive, has been identified.

Deputy Coroner Sam Weakley, identified the victim as 28-year-old Trevor Persinger who lived in the 2500 block of Cross Hill Road. Persinger was pronounced dead at the scene. He died of multiple blunt force injuries.

Police say the driver of a car headed north on Taylorsville Road veered across lanes of traffic and hit a southbound car head on.

Alicia Smiley, a spokeswoman for the Louisville Metro Police Department, said the driver of the car that was hit was a woman in her 40s.

"She had to be extricated by [the] Jeffersontown Fire Department and was taken to University Hospital with broken bones," Smiley added. "However, she was conscious and alert at the time that she was transported so those injuries appear to be non-life threatening."

There were no passengers in either car.

The investigation is ongoing.
