CADIZ, KY (June 18, 2017) - The Kentucky State Police are investigating an early morning crash which claimed the life of a Trigg County resident. At approximately 6amCT, KSP received a call from Trigg County Dispatch, requesting a trooper to Kings Chapel Road for a single vehicle injury collision. Upon the arrival of Trooper Aaron Acree, he confirmed a passenger had been taken to Trigg County Hospital and the driver had died at the scene.

Preliminary investigation has shown Matthew Lambruno was driving his 2016 GMC truck east on Kings Chapel Road when the vehicle exited the roadway. Upon leaving the roadway, the truck struck an embankment and overturned multiple times. Matthew Lambruno was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected during the collision. Speed and alcohol are believed to be contributing factors in the collision.

The only passenger in the truck, Trevor T. Saunders, age 31, of Cadiz, Kentucky, was taken by ambulance to Trigg County Hospital and later flown to Vanderbilt Medical Center for the treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Matthew L. Lambruno, age 26, of Cadiz, Kentucky was pronounced dead at the scene by the Trigg County Coroner. An autopsy is scheduled at the Medical Examiner's Office in Madisonville.

KSP was assisted at the scene by Trigg County Ambulance, Trigg County Rescue Squad, and Trigg County Coroner's Office.

The investigation is continuing by Trooper Aaron Acree. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police Post 1 at 270-856-3721 or anonymously at 1-800-222-5555.
