Occurring at Pembroke Rd. and Clara Drive in Christian County, the incident involved pedestrians Richard M. Luttrull, 87, and his family, as well as a 2003 International Rollback Wrecker driven by Steven  E. Durham, 39.

As the KSP’s Trooper Derek Smith explains in his summary of the incident, Durham was operating the wrecker northbound on US41 (within the limits of Pembroke, KY) when Luttrull and his family were just beginning to cross the roadway ahead of the driver. Unfortunately, Durham was unable to avoid a collision and struck Luttrull in the northbound lane of US41.

Following the collision, Luttrull succumbed to his injuries at the scene as was pronounced deceased by the Christian County Coroner’s Office.

No other injuries were sustained as a result of the incident.
