Palmyra man dies in I-65 crash
A Palmyra man was killed last week in a vehicle crash on Interstate 65.
James Gregory, 37, was traveling north on I-65 last Wednesday when he apparently tried to change lanes in front of a semi-tractor trailer on the Kennedy Bridge near the Jeffersonville exit, according to the Louisville Metro Police Dept.
Gregory’s Pontiac was clipped about 6:45 a.m. by the semi and spun out of control. It struck a retaining wall, then was hit by a Chevrolet Cavalier.
Gregory was pronounced dead at the scene by a Jefferson County (Ky.) deputy coroner.
No one else was injured in the crash.
Northbound traffic on I-65 was closed for more than three hours following the crash.
Gregory was a cabinet worker at Kitchen Kompact in Jeffersonville.
Survivors include his wife, Christy; two daughters, Olivia and Miranda Gregory; his parents, Ray and Wanda Gregory of Salem; six brothers, Randy Gregory of Hardinsburg, and Ricky, David, Daniel, David and Sam Gregory, all of Salem, and two sisters, Lela Herbert of Fredericksburg and Lora Clark of Florida.
The funeral was Sunday at Love Funeral Home in Palmyra with burial in Horners Chapel Cemetery near Fredericksburg.
