A Bardstown man was killed early Sunday morning in a head-on wreck on KY 55 several miles south of Bloomfield.
According to an accident report from the Nelson County Sheriff's Department, Matthew Hamilton, 34, Bardstown, suffered fatal injuries when the front of his car struck the front of a truck traveling the opposite direction.
The truck's driver, David Allen, 41, Lebanon Junction, and passenger Patrick Mason, 23, Mount Washington, were also injured. Mason was transported by helicopter to the University of Louisville Hospital and Allen was taken to Flaget Memorial Hospital by Nelson County EMS.
The report stated that Hamilton was traveling north at 12:54 a.m. on KY 55 2.8 miles south of Bloomfield when he crossed into the southbound lane and struck Allen. When law enforcement and EMS arrived at the accident about 12 minutes after it occurred, Allen and Mason were out of their vehicle. Allen told the officer that Hamilton did not have his lights on and that he didn't see the car until it was too late to avoid a collision. The report estimates the vehicles were traveling 45-55 mph.
The Northeast Nelson Fire Department was called in to free Hamilton from his car, after which his body was turned over to the Nelson County Coroner.
According to the report, none of the people involved were wearing seat belts and neither driver was susptected of being drunk.

I think it's interesting this guy has had drug use problems before, his brother is a lawyer, and accident details are suppressed....probably b/c family doesn't want what really happened to be public. The advantages of having a lawyer in the family! It's sad he's dead, but who drives around with half their clothes off at that time of the morning with no headlights on...somebody jacked up!
