1 PERSON INJURED IN A PULASKI COUNTY ROLL OVER ACCIDENT

 

According to Pulaski County Sheriff, Greg Speck, Deputy Brandon Smith responded to a single vehicle accident on KY 196 in Nancy, KY.  When Deputy Smith arrived, he discovered a 2003 Toyota Tundra on its top. The Tundra was pulling a small fishing boat. The vehicle was being operated by a Ernest Larch, age 59 of Nancy, KY.  Mr. Larch was treated at the scene by Somerset/Pulaski County EMS and transported to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital for treatment of his injuries. The injuries appear to be non-life threatening.  There were no other passengers in the truck with Mr. Larch.  

 

It appears the vehicle was traveling westbound and was going into some S curves on KY 196 when the driver lost control striking an embankment and overturning.  The truck sustained major damage, but the boat and trailer only sustained minor damage. Wet roads may have been a contributing factor in the accident.

 

The Nancy Fire Department arrived at the scene and assisted with the injured and assisted the Sheriff’s Office during their investigation.    

 

The accident remains under investigation by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office.

DEATH INVESTIGATION IN PULASKI COUNTY

 

According to Pulaski County Sheriff Greg Speck, on July 1, 2019, a male individual age 62 years
of the Nancy, Kentucky area was reported missing to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies responded to his residence but could not locate him. The area searched by Deputies is
heavily overgrown. The Sheriff’s Office helicopter was used but the person could not be
located.


On July 8, 2011 Sheriff’s Deputies returned to his residence. His residence is in a secluded area,
with dense undergrowth. The residence was heavily secured from the inside. Investigation at
the residence led Deputies to believe that entry into the residence was necessary. With the
assistance of the Pulaski County Rescue Squad and the Nancy Fire Department, entry was gained
into the residence. A body was discovered in the residence. It is believed the body has been in
the house for some time. The Pulaski County Coroner’s Office came to the scene and removed
the body, which was taken from the scene to the Kentucky Medical Examiner’s Office for an
autopsy. The cause of death is still being investigated at this time, but initially appears to be
from natural causes.


The investigation continues by the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office and the Pulaski County
Coroner’s Office.


The name of the victim has not been released due to waiting on the notification of next of kin
and positive identification of the deceased.

LIBERTY MAN ARRESTED AFTER A HATCHET ATTACK ON HIS MOTHER

 

A Liberty man is accused of attacking his mother with a hatchet.

 

Casey County Sheriff, Chad Weddle, along with Deputy Jason Grider, responded to a 911 dispatch around 9:30am Thursday morning at 2075 Poplar Springs Road. 

 

The call came from Tony Luttrell, stating that 22 year old William Tyler Luttrell had attacked his mother, Michelle Luttrell.

 

Michelle identified her son as her attacker. She suffered deep cuts to her forehead and right arm. A helicopter was requested, but declined due to weather conditions. Michelle was transported to Ephraim McDowell Hospital in Danville by Casey County EMS.

 

Sheriff Weddle says Tyler Luttrell was found in an upstairs bedroom of the residence. He was ordered to put his hands behind his back, but jumped up with the hatched in his right hand. He ignored several commands to drop the weapon. That’s when Sheriff Weddle told him if he didn’t drop the hatchet, he’d have to shoot him. Tyler eventually complied and was taken into custody without further incident.

 

He was lodged in the Casey County Jail on charges of Assault-1st Degree (Domestic Violence). He was also served a Russell County indictment warrant for Possession of Controlled Substance-1st Degree (Methamphetamine), and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
