A Washington County man is dead after a two-vehicle accident on KY 555 around 10 p.m. Tuesday night.

Robert Wayne Miles of Springfield was traveling north on KY 555 when he attempted to pass a vehicle in a no-passing zone, according to a report by Kentucky State Police. The 1995 Ford truck he was driving collided head-on with a 2007 Chevy van driven by Willie J. Adams of Washington, Pa., who was traveling south on KY 555.

Both men were transported to Spring View Hospital in Lebanon, where they were later pronounced dead as a result of their injuries. Miles was wearing a seat belt, according to the report, but Adams was not.

The accident remains under investigation by Kentucky State Police.
