Officials release identity of Nelson County crash victim

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- We now know the name of the man who died in a crash on Bluegrass Parkway in Nelson County earlier this week. 

Douglas Clowers, 35, of Bowling Green was a passenger in a minivan that collided with a semi early Tuesday. It happened near Boston, Kentucky around 7 a.m. on June 14. Clowers and another passenger were ejected from the minivan. They were not wearing seat belts. 

Police say the minivan driver apparently lost control, flipping the van multiple times. The minivan crossed over the median and into oncoming traffic in the westbound lanes, slamming into a semi truck. 

The semi driver was treated and released from Hardin Memorial Hospital.

Officials are investigating but say speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors.
