Truck in fatal collision was part of funeral procession

GLASGOW — Local law enforcement officials confirmed Friday that one of the vehicles involved in a fatal collision Wednesday at U.S. 68-Ky. 80 and Veterans Outer Loop in Glasgow had been part of a funeral procession.

A 2002 Chevy Tracker, which flipped over as the result of the impact, was in a procession heading out of town on 68-80, said Julie Anne Williams, public affairs officer for Glasgow Police Department.

The Tracker collided with a 1998 Pontiac at the intersection, and the Tracker's front-seat passenger – Delmar Lloyd, 69, of Harlan County – was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a GPD press release Thursday.

The Pontiac had been on the loop, in one of the lanes closest to the Dollar General store that faces 68-80, Williams said Friday. The final report was incomplete Friday, she said.

The funeral procession was being led by a member of the Barren County Sheriff's Office, but the front of the line was far enough ahead of the collision that the deputy was not immediately aware it had happened, Sheriff Kent Keen said.

The procession occurred after a 1 p.m. service at A.F. Crow & Son Funeral Home for H. Thomas Neal, whose burial was at Big Meadow Cemetery.

Follis Crow, president and CEO of the funeral home, said he was not in the procession but he heard from his staff that they were unaware a wreck happened until they got to the cemetery. After the service, some of Neal's family members went to check on those who had been involved.
