A one-vehicle accident on Tuesday, Feb. 10, at 10:19 a.m. claimed the life of Jose F. Padilla-Martinez, 29, of Versailles.
Martinez was traveling west on the Bluegrass Parkway when he lost control of a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer, struck a guardrail and then a tree, according to a report by Washington County Sheriff Tommy Bartley.
Martinez was ejected from the vehicle, and was found about 15 feet from it. The report indicates that cans of beer were found inside the vehicle, but blood work is pending to determine whether Martinez had been drinking.
