One person dead after Saturday morning car accident

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One person is dead after an early Saturday morning car crash in Buechel, near Fegenbush Lane.

Officials say a man was driving southbound on Fegenbush Lane in a black Chevy Trailblazer. They say the driver lost control and went through a fence and into a pond in front of the Village at Wildwood subdivision.

It happened at around 4:00 Saturday morning. Officials were able to recover the person's body soon afterwards, and the SUV several hours after that.

Police say they believe it was an accident, but are still investigating. They haven't ruled out speed and alcohol as possible causes.

Authorities think that the driver was the only person in the car.

That person's identity has not been released but the coroner's office says he drowned.
