Three Wayne Countians Involved In Fatal Accident In Burkesville
The State Police Post at Columbia investigated a collision that occurred
at approximately 3AM, seven miles West of Burkesville on KY 90. 30
year old April M. Thompson of Burkesville was traveling East on KY 90
operating a 2006 Chevy van, when she crossed the center line and
collided with a westbound 2007 Freightliner Semi Truck operated by
50 year old Robert Nissley of Monticello.

Nissley attempted to avoid the collision and ran off the roadway into a
ditch line following the initial impact. Nissley and a passenger, 15 year
old Caleb Nissley were both wearing seatbelts. They were treated and
released at Cumberland County Hospital. Another passenger, 13 year
old Jared Nissley was unrestrained in the sleeper and sustained a
broken led. He was transported to UK Medical Center.

Thompson was pronounced dead at the scene by the Cumberland
County Coroner. Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor.
