Kevin Muncy killed on interstate in Whitley County; Southbound I-75 shut down for nearly 3 hours

By Brad Hicks / Staff Writer

A London man died as the result of an accident that occurred Monday evening on Interstate 75 in Whitley County.

Kevin P. Muncy, 32, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Whitley County Coroner’s Office at 6:50 p.m. after being struck by a tractor-trailer near the 22 mile marker on southbound Interstate 75.

The accident occurred at approximately 6:30 p.m. According to Officer Greg Reams with Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement, Muncy was traveling northbound on the interstate when he lost control of his Ford crew cab pickup truck and went into the median. Reams said the reason Muncy lost control of the vehicle is still under investigation, pending a toxicology report.

Reams said Muncy’s vehicle entered the median on its side and overturned several times. According to Reams, Muncy, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from his vehicle as it overturned in the median.

Both Muncy and his truck came to a rest in the southbound lane when Muncy’s person was struck by a tractor-trailer driven by Charles J. Williams, 33, of Washburn, Tenn. Reams said debris from the bed of Muncy’s pickup was thrown into the front of Williams’ truck as it overturned in the median. Williams was taken to Baptist Regional Medical Center to be checked out.

Whitley County Emergency Management Director Danny Moses said southbound lanes were closed approximately three hours and traffic was diverted onto US Highway 25. Moses said the southbound lanes were reopened at 9:23 p.m.

The KVE was assisted at the scene by the Whitley County Coroner’s Office, Kentucky State Police Trooper Bill Elliott, Whitley County Sheriff’s Office Deputies Josh Meadors and Johnny Miller, the Oak Grove Volunteer Fire Department, Department of Emergency Services Coordinator Jerry Rains, and Whitley County Emergency Management Director Danny Moses.

No autopsy is planned. Reams said the investigation is continuing.

when his truck came to rest on the southbound lane there was one car between my truck and his. It was a very bad accident. The only thing i really want whitley county residence to know is that when there is a fatality, it should not take the coroner almost 2 hours to arrive on the scene. that poor man lay on the interstate and those of us close enough to see everything it was just uncalled for.
And the truck was a dodge not a ford. I pray for the family, and may kevin rest in peace.

Please allow me to clear something.The coronor came when his was called by the police, in a accident like this we have to wait for the State police to disptch a reconstructive to inspect the crime scene before anything can be moved.We are blessed to have a very professional coronor and Sheriffs dept .

of course you are going to be loyal to the team, there were whitley county officers on the scene in less than 5 minutes. And most of them were wondering around like they didn't know what to do. I'm sorry, but i dont, and after seeing all that i did ever want to have to experience anything like that again. I do think that it could have been handled alot more professionally. And dont get me wrong the jobs that officals have to do is not one that i would want. My hats off to you i just think you should be more prepaired for scenes like that one.
