Ramsey man dies in Kentucky crash
A Ramsey man died last week in a traffic crash in LaRue County, Ky., near Bardstown.
William Raymond (Chip) Grimmette, 25, was pronounced dead Thursday, Jan. 23, at 6:20 p.m. at the scene on U.S. 31, about two miles north of Athertonville, according to the Kentucky State Police.
Kentucky trooper Jamie Heller said Grimmette was traveling north on U.S. 31E when he lost control of his Chrysler Sebring on the snow-covered road and crossed the center line, striking a southbound Chevy pickup driven by Robert L. Enlow Jr., 49, Hodgenville, Ky.
Grimmette was not wearing a seat belt, police said.
Enlow and his passenger, Elizabeth Enlow, 50, also of Hodgenville, were transported by STATCARE air ambulance to University of Louisville Hospital. Neither Enlow was wearing a seat belt, police said.
Elizabeth was in surgical intensive care yesterday at University, and Robert is still a patient there.
“The accident is still under investigation,” and “alcohol is suspected as a contributing factor,” police said.
Grimmette was a native of Bardstown, the son of Cynthia Durham of Marengo and William Sheroon of Rineyville, Ky.
He was a concrete finisher.
Survivors besides his parents include a son, William Michael Grimmette of Corydon; a brother, Robert Sheroon of Ramsey; two sisters, Amy Combs and Dede Sheroon, both of Ramsey; a half-brother, Gary Johnson of Kentucky; a half-sister, Leeanna Compton of Marengo; and grandparents, Carl and Laverne Divine of Ramsey.
The funeral was Monday, Jan. 27, at Love Funeral Home in Palmyra with burial in the Hardinsburg Cemetery.
