UPDATE 3:05 p.m.: Fatal wreck on Burkesville Road

GLASGOW — A Summer Shade man was identified as the driver in a fatal crash on Burkesville Road that occurred early Saturday morning.

Mason Ogborn, 19, was driving a 1995 GMC pickup truck eastbound on Ky. 90 when he went off the left side of the road and into a ditch, according to Barren County Sheriff's Deputy Rodney Sponhouse, lead investigator in the crash.

No other cars were involved and it is unknown whether speed was a factor in the crash.
