Posted: Updated:

A morning crash killed two and injured two others.

Kentucky State Police say the crash happened on US 62 just two miles west of Princeton around 5:37 a.m.

Troopers say 54-year-old Ronnie Ross of Princeton was driving a van eastbound when for an undetermined reason, the van crossed into the westbound lane of traffic.

The van then left the road, became airborne, went across a field, and down a earthen embankment before coming to rest of its left side.

Ross and a passenger, 61-year-old Perry Dirden of Princeton were pronounced dead at the scene.

Two other passengers in the van were treated for injuries. 40-year-old Sherry Whitehair of Princeton was flown to Tristar Skyline Medical Center in Nashville. 17-year-old Travis Whitehair of Princeton was taken to the Caldwell Medical Center where he was treated and released.

All four people had to be extricated from the van.
