Kentucky State Police responded to a multi-vehicle fatal collision that had occurred at the 26 mile marker on the southbound side of Interstate 65 in Warren County Monday (04/05) evening.
A preliminary investigation revealed a 2012 Freightliner box truck, being operated by 36 year-old Donald Kabwenge, of Georgia, was traveling south on I-65 and failed to see a 2020 Nissan Altima, being operated by 22 year-old Alyssa Aldrete, of Auburn, slowed in the roadway due to merging traffic for road construction at the 26 mile marker. The box truck struck the Nissan in the rear bumper, causing it to strike the rear of a white 2018 Freightliner tractor-trailer that was also slowed in traffic. The box truck then struck the tractor-trailer as well. The passenger of the Nissan Altima was 21 year-old Alexis Coker of Auburn.
