A Morganfield man is dead after an early morning accident Thursday.
The Union County Sheriff’s Office responded to a single vehicle wreck around 5:40 a.m. on KY 56 East near SR 983.
The sheriff’s office says it appears Jonathen Willett, 21, of Morganfield, entered oncoming traffic, overcorrected, and went off the road – rolling over several times and ejecting Willett before coming to rest.
Willett was taken to the Union County Methodist Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The crash remains under investigation.
