A rollover crash involving a red Ford F150 claimed the life of a Leitchfield man on Friday afternoon.

A Leitchfield man lost his life in a crash off of the Clarkson exit ramp of the Western Kentucky Parkway on Friday afternoon, June 15.

At approximately 2:03 p.m. on Friday, the Grayson County Sheriff's Office (GCSO), Grayson County EMS, and Clarkson Volunteer Fire Department were called to respond to the 112 mile marker on the westbound side of the Western Kentucky Parkway (the parkway) on a reported injury accident in which the driver had been ejected from the vehicle.

Shortly after the initial calls went out, the Leitchfield Fire Department, Clarkson Police Department, and Grayson County Coroner's Office also responded to the scene.

According to investigating GCSO Deputy Taylor Logsdon, a red Ford F-150, driven by 53-year-old Michael Hack, of Leitchfield, had exited the parkway at the Clarkson off-ramp and, for unknown reasons, partially went off the roadway on the left-hand side, before turning back to the right.

After doing so, the Ford then exited the roadway on the right-hand side and rolled an estimated one-and-a-half times before coming to a rest upside down, Logsdon said.

Hack was ejected from the vehicle, and, despite life-saving measures taken by first responders, he was pronounced deceased on the scene.

In addition, the Ford was disabled as a result of the crash and was removed from the scene by Galloway's Towing Service.
