A hit-and-run collision on Gose Pike that killed a pedestrian last weekend remains under investigation, but the case has been transferred from the Danville Police Department to Kentucky State Police.
KSP spokesman Trooper Paul Blanton said Friday that investigation into the June 29 death of Anne Elizabeth Duncan was turned over to Trooper Eric Taylor on Wednesday at the request of Danville police. Taylor, an experienced collision reconstructionist, was on the scene the night Duncan died.
“We never get any business from Danville,” Blanton said. “They almost always take care of their own stuff.”
Danville Police Chief Tony Gray said on Friday that Danville has two officers who are trained reconstructionists but both were out of town the night of the collision.
“This is a very delicate case — a fatality. We just, right now, believe it’s best for KSP to handle it.”
