A Louisville auto accident involving two vehicles leaves one man dead and sends three others to local hospitals. The incident took place at approximately 5:30 PM on Monday evening, February 1, 2010, at the intersection of Manslick Road and Fairdale Road.

According to police, a Chevrolet pickup truck was traveling northbound on Manslick Road and crossed over the center line. That is when the truck slammed into a Pontiac head-on.

The driver of the pick-up truck, who is believed to be in his 30’s, was pronounced dead at the scene from injuries sustained in the accident. He was not believed to have been wearing a seat belt when he hit the Pontiac. Police have not released his identity.
