Kentucky State Police say a trooper has been killed after crashing on a rain-soaked roadway in the central part of the state, reports the Associated Press.

Police said in a statement that 42-year-old Sgt. David Gibbs of Campbellsville lost control of his cruiser while going around a sharp curve on Kentucky 210 Friday morning in LaRue County, near the Green County line.

The statement said Gibbs' vehicle traveled into the oncoming lane, where it was hit by a Jeep driven by 63-year-old Patrick Judd of Louisville. Judd was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

How much you want to bet the car had over 125,000 miles?

123&Bush I am in agreement with you about the 125,000 miles. May you rest in peace Sgt. Gibbs and condolences to your family and the Kentucky State Police.
