An 18-year-old man was killed after he was hit by a car trying to cross US 42 at Mount Zion Road in Union at approximately 9:00 PM in the evening, according to investigators.
Glennis Christophel was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment for the injuries he sustained in the Kentucky pedestrian accident, but later died from his injuries.
Police say that the driver who struck Christophel, 18-year-old Jason Chisholm, was driving his vehicle in the curb lane at the time of the tragic crash that ended in Christophel’s death. Investigators are still investigating the accident.
A fund has been established to help cover the funeral costs for Christophel. The Glennis Christophel fund has been set up at US Bank and donations can be made at any US Bank location.
