A Sonora man was killed in a crash near the intersection of Peonia Road and Rocky Hill Estates Road last Friday night. 

On Friday, Jan. 24, at approximately 5:46 p.m., Kentucky State Police Post 4 received a call from the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office requesting assistance with a two-vehicle collision near the Peonia Road and Rocky Hill Estates Road intersection in Grayson County.

The KSP's preliminary investigation revealed that 36-year-old John T. Puckett, of Sonora, Kentucky, was traveling east on Peonia Road in a 1999 Dodge Ram, while 53-year-old Vincent Abell, of Crestwood, Kentucky, had just turned west from Rocky Hill Estates Road onto Peonia Road in a 2014 Ford Super Duty pickup truck.

For unknown reasons, Puckett crossed the center line into the westbound lane and into the path of Abell’s vehicle.

Puckett was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Grayson County Coroner’s Office.

Abell and his passenger, 53-year-old Laura Shaw, of Louisville, were transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The affected portion of Peonia Road was closed in order to allow troopers to investigate the collision.

It is believed alcohol may have been a contributing factor.

KSP Post 4 was also assisted at the scene the Leitchfield Fire Department, Wax Fire Department, and Grayson County EMS.

The collision is under investigation by Trooper/Reconstructionist Brandon Brooks.
