Details are sketchy at this time. Two people died yesterday morning, Monday, November 21, 2016, at about 8:30amET, in a car at the intersection of New Lebanon Road & Palestine Road in Taylor County, KY.

Taylor County Sheriff Allen Newton told 99.9 the Big Dawg that the car apparently had a flat tire, and moments later the car was fully engulfed in flames.

Sheriff Newton says the occupants were unable to escape the blaze.

The bodies were removed and taken to the Kentucky State Medical Examiner for positive identification.

More details will be released today from Sheriff Newton
