Keith Alan Clark (20) was eastbound on Burkesville Road when he lost control of his 1996 Pontiac passenger car on the wet roadway. Clark went into the westbound lane of travel and struck a minivan driven by Sarah Dawn Taylor (31) of Tompkinsville head on.

Taylor and passengers were taken to TJ Samson Hospital. Taylor was later taken to Vanderbilt by Ambulance. Larry Joe Fish (65) was transferred to Vanderbilt as well by helicopter. Dillon Taylor (7) and Makayla Taylor (9) were treated and released from TJ. 40 year old Joe Kelly Fish was pronounced dead at the scene by Barren County Coroner Mike Swift.

It appears that all was wearing seat belts except the deceased. The investigation is ongoing. ALC/Drugs doesn’t appear to be a factor in the accident.

Investigated by BCSO

Assisted by: Barren Metcalfe EMS, Monroe County EMS, Summer Shade VFD, and the Barren County Coroner’s Office.
