KSP Investigates Fatal Accident in Floyd County

Date of News Release: 09/11/2015

(Harold, KY) - Kentucky State Police, Pikeville Post, is investigating a fatal collision that occurred in Floyd County during the morning hours of September 10, 2015.

The initial investigation indicates that Kelly Caudill, 44 years old of Shelbiana, Kentucky, was operating a 1991 Toyota Corolla while traveling south on US 23 in the Harold community. Caudill lost control of his vehicle and crossed the median into the oncoming/north bound lane of travel. Caudill's vehicle entered the path of a Sandy Valley Transportation van just before the two vehicles collided. Caudill was pronounced deceased at the scene by Floyd County Coroner Greg Nelson. Evidence at the scene indicates Caudill was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the collision, and alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

The ongoing investigation is being conducted by KSP Post 09 Accident Reconstructionist Trooper John Dixon.
