Victims of 2nd fatality crash in Calloway County identified
CALLOWAY COUNTY, Ky. - The victims of Friday morning's second fatality crash on US 641 south of Murray have been identified.
Kentucky State Police say 59-year-old Melanie Stockham, of Murray, and 61-year-old Perry Adams, of Kirksey, Kentucky, died following the crash. Twenty-two-year-old Ali Adams, also of Kirksey, was injured.
KSP says Stockham was driving a 1999 GMC pickup truck when she was struck by a 2007 Dodge Caliber driven by Ali Adams.
Adams's vehicle hydroplaned and crossed into the southbound lane, striking Stockham's truck head-on.
Ali Adams and Perry Adams were taken to Murray Calloway County Hospital. Perry was pronounced dead at the hospital, while Ali was transferred to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.
Neither Ali nor Perry Adams was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, while Stockham was wearing hers.
KSP is reconstructing the crash. US 641 is expected to be closed in the area through much of the afternoon.
The collision followed an earlier fatality crash that shut down the same highway south of Murray this morning.
