Hickman KY Auto Crashes Off Bridge, Jun 1999
CAR PLUNGES OFF BRIDGE, KILLING FIVE IN KENTUCKY.
Hickman, Ky. (AP) - A car ran off a bridge and landed upside-down in a creek, killing the driver and all four of his passengers.
State police were investigating what caused the car driven by MAURICE TUCKER, 56, of Hickman, to crash Saturday, said dispatcher Heather Fagan.
Officials said the car apparently ran up a concrete guide before falling at least 15 feet into the creek and landing upside-down in 5 to 6 feet of water.
TUCKER and three other victims died at the scene; a fifth person was taken to Parkway Regional Hospital in Fulton, where he died a short time later.
Hickman is 220 miles southwest of Louisville.
