A Nelson County man died Thursday afternoon at the scene of a single-vehicle crash just past exit 86 on Interstate 65 in Glendale. Kentucky State Police said Robert Sutton, 58, of Cox’s Creek was southbound on I-65 when the Dodge Ram 1500 he was driving left the roadway on the right shoulder and struck a tree.

KSP Trooper Norman Chaffins said investigators were unsure why the vehicle left the roadway, but alcohol was not considered to be a factor. Chaffins said it appeared the driver was secured by a seat belt and both airbags deployed on impact.

Witnesses also indicated the truck may have traveled into the median before leaving the road.
