Kentucky man killed in single-car wreck

ANDERSON, Ind. — A Kentucky man was killed Thursday night in a single-car accident, and police believe drugs or alcohol might have contributed to the wreck.

The 22-year-old man’s name is being withheld by authorities until family can be notified, according to a press release from the Anderson Police Department.

The crash happened at about 11:24 p.m. in the 1400 block of Main Street in Anderson. Investigators believe the man’s 2011 Chevrolet Cruz slammed into a crossing arm in the area, and the impact cause him to be ejected from the car.

Witnesses told police they saw the car just minutes before the crash doing doughnuts in the 2100 block of Main Street. It’s believed he drove north, lost control of the car and crashed into one of two railroad crossing arms and a steal I-beam along the tracks near the intersection of 14th and Main street.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Police will await a blood test and toxicology report before they can be sure what might have contributed to the accident, according to the release.
