The preliminary investigation revealed that Christopher C. Caraway, 29, of Princeton, Ky., was operating a 1991 Mazda RX7 southbound on Kentucky 139. Brian A. Samuels, 29, of Princeton, Ky., was operating a 2005 Chevrolet Z71 pickup truck northbound on Kentucky 139 when it appears that Mr. Samuels’ vehicle veered into the southbound lane and struck Mr. Caraway’s vehicle head-on. Both vehicles came to rest in the travel portion of the roadway.

Mr. Caraway was transported via ambulance to the Caldwell Medical Center. Due to his condition, Mr. Caraway was being flown to Vanderbilt by Air Evac when the helicopter had to be diverted to the Jennie Stuart Medical Center. Mr. Caraway succumbed to his injuries and passed at the JSMC.

Mr. Samuels and his passenger (son), Dylan Samuels, 6, were flown by PHI to Vanderbilt for treatment. Mr. Caraway and Mr. Samuels were wearing seatbelts. Dylan Samuels was restrained in a booster seat.
