BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — Police say three people have died in a crash as traffic was slowing on Interstate 65 in southern Kentucky to merge for road construction. According to a preliminary investigation by Kentucky State Police, a box truck operated by 36-year-old Donald Kabwenge of Georgia didn’t see a Nissan Altima slowed in the roadway Monday night to merge for construction. Police said the truck stuck the Nissan and then both vehicles hit a tractor-trailer. Kabwenge and two Kentucky women in the Nissan Altima were killed. The women were identified as 22-year-old Alyussa Aldrete and 21-year-old Alexis Coker. An investigation into the crash continues.
