The preliminary investigation revealed that Justin A. Cunningham, age 20 of Owensboro, KY, was operating a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix southbound on the Edward T. Breathitt Pennyrile Parkway in the passing (left) lane. Larry D. Osby, age 62 of Scottsboro, AL, was operating a 1981 Mack truck southbound on the parkway in the travel (right) lane.
 
It appears that Mr. Cunningham fell asleep as he was passing Mr. Osby’s truck. The Pontiac drifted into the travel lane and made contact with Mr. Osby’s truck. Mr. Cunningham lost control of the vehicle and it veered to the left. The vehicle traveled into the median where it overturned onto its top. The Pontiac came to rest on its top in the median. Mr. Osby was able to pull his truck to the side of the road.
 
Mr. Cunningham and his three passengers, Joyce Willett, age 19, Johnathan Cunningham, age 1, and Jaxton Cunningham, 3 ½ months, all of Owensboro, KY, were transported via ambulance to Baptist Health Hospital for treatment of possible injuries. Mr. Cunningham and Ms. Willett were not wearing seatbelts. The children were restrained in child safety seats. Mr. Osby, who was wearing a seatbelt, was not injured.

Trooper First Class John Komar investigated the collision. The Nortonville Rescue Squad and Medical Center Ambulance Service assisted at the scene.
