SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY. - (Mon 28 Nov 2016) - Kentucky State Police Post 4 Troopers responded to a multiple vehicle fatal collision in Bullitt Co. Monday morning.

On November 28, 2016 at approximately 6:06amET, KSP received a call from Bullitt Co. dispatch asking for assistance on a multiple vehicle accident on I-65 at the 117 mile marker southbound.

Mary Canary (42) and her passenger, Clara Campbell (20) both of Louisville, KY, were traveling south in a 2008 Chevrolet HHR. For unknown reasons, Ms. Canary lost control of the vehicle and struck the concrete barrier causing the vehicle to roll over and come to rest on its top partially in the left shoulder and in the left lane.

At this time, traffic began to slow and several vehicles came to a stop. Several occupants in the stopped vehicles exited their cars to attempt to provide assistance with the passengers in the accident.

A short time later, a 2014 Freightliner Semi-truck operated by Alonzo Silva (57) of Saginaw, MI. was traveling south on I-65 in the center lane. The Freightliner operated by Mr. Silva struck a 1994 Ford Ranger that was operated by Jessie Maxwell (36) of Mt. Washington, that was also traveling south in the center lane.

This collision caused Mr. Maxwell's vehicle to strike another vehicle causing a chain reaction where several other vehicles were struck by Mr. Maxwell's vehicle and Mr. Silva's Semi- truck.

Two bystanders attempting to render aid were also struck while on foot. In total, 9 vehicles were involved in the accident.

Mary Canary, Clara Campbell, Jessie Maxwell, Deborah Kelly (56) of Shepherdsville, Adam Bogard (32) of Shepherdsville, and Shaine Weaver (21) of Shepherdsville were all transported to University of Louisville Hospital.

Mr. Bogard and Mr. Weaver were out of their vehicles when they were struck.

Mr. Maxwell was pronounced deceased at the Hospital.

The condition of the other patients are unknown at this time but aren't expected to be life threatening.

Richard Hubbard was transported to Baptist East Hospital and was released.

The accident caused Troopers to close the southbound lanes of I-65 for several hours with traffic being diverted.

The accident is still under investigation by KSP Trooper/reconstructionist Brandon Brooks.

KSP was assisted at the scene by the Shepherdsville Police Department, Bullitt Coounty Sheriff's Office, Bullitt County EMS, Shepherdsville Fire Department, State Highway Department, Southeast Bullitt Fire Department, and the Zoneton Fire Department.
