A single vehicle crash on Bishop Road just before 1:00 a.m. Saturday morning, November 24, claimed the life of two Barren County men.

Preliminary investigation indicates the accident occurred when 22-year-old Dustin D. Parrish of Glasgow, was southbound in the 400 block of Bishop Road and lost control of a 2004 Jeep Wrangler, when he failed to navigate a curve, the Jeep overcorrected before traveling off the roadway and down an embankment causing it to overturn, ejecting both Parrish and his passenger, 19-year-old Aaron J. McCoy, also of Glasgow. Neither Parrish nor McCoy were wearing seatbelts.

Parrish and McCoy were both pronounced dead at the scene by Deputy Coroner JD Walden.

According to investigators alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash.

Deputy Adam Bow leads the investigation and was assisted at the scene by Deputies Rodney Sponhouse, Dave Houchens and Dean Crumbaugh.

Barren-Metcalfe Emergency Medical Services and members of the South Barren Volunteer Fire Department were first responders at the scene.
