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.

Ogborn was ejected from the vehicle and was most likely not wearing his seat belt, Sponhouse said.

Residents of the road heard the crash at about 3:45 a.m. but Ogborn wasn't found until about 5:45 a.m.

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