A Mount Sterling man was killed Wednesday morning after a rollover collision on I-65 South.
Kentucky State Police responded to the accident at 7:23 a.m. near the 41 mile marker in Warren County.
Police say Elzie J. Prater, of Jeffersonville, was in the right lane behind a black SUV when it suddenly stopped causing Prater to swerve right to avoid a collision. The car went off the should of the roadway and up an embankment, rolling several times.
A passenger, Elzie T. Prater, the driver’s father, was reclined in the passenger seat with a seatbelt on, and was ejected during the rollover. He was taken to the Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased a short time later by the Warren County Coroner.
Elzie J. Prater was treated and released.
