MACKVILLE - Two area men died in a one-vehicle crash Saturday night on Ky. 442, 4.5 miles east of here, state police said.
James R. Nelson, 33, of Perryville, and Harold D. Dennis, 32, of Stanford, were pronounced dead at the scene by Washington County coroner.
Nelson reportedly was driving east at 9:55 p.m. when his 1986 GMC automobile slid off the road and struck a tree, according to Trooper David Smith. Neither was wearing a seat belt.
Smith said alcohol was a contributing factor.
Arrangements for both men were pending at Alexander & Royalty Funeral Home, Harrodsburg.
