CALVERT CITY, KY (Sat 30 Sep 2017) - At approximately 1:50amCT, Marshall County Dispatch received a report of a two vehicle collision on Interstate 24 near the 21 mile marker. Upon the arrival of deputies and other first responders, the Kentucky State Police were called to conduct the investigation.


Preliminary investigation has shown Lindy W. Duhon, age 62, of Erath, Louisiana was driving a 2016 Kenworth tractor trailer westbound on Interstate 24 near the 21 mile marker when, for an unknown reason, the vehicle dropped off the left shoulder. Mr. Duhon then steered the tractor trailer back onto the roadway, where it turned onto its side and slid to a stop across both lanes of westbound traffic. Shortly thereafter, a 2017 Kenworth tractor trailer being driven westbound by JB Burrell Jr., age 63, of Hendersonville, North Carolina, struck the first tractor trailer.

Mr. Burrell was airlifted to Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee for treatment of life threatening injuries. A passenger in the second tractor trailer, Marie S. Burrell, age 70, of Hendersonville, North Carolina, was transported by ambulance to Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, Kentucky, for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Ms. Burrell was later flown to Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Kentucky State Police were assisted by Marshall County Sheriff Department, Calvert City Police Department, Marshall County Rescue Squad, Calvert City Fire Department, Palma-Briensburg Fire Department, Gilbertsville Fire Department, Possom Trot Sharpe Fire Department, Marshall County Ambulance, Air Evac, Marshall County Office of Emergency Management, and the State Highway Department.

The westbound lanes of Interstate 24 remain closed and are expected to re-open at approximately 2pmCT.

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