Troopers responded to the rollover on the northbound side of the Pennyrile Parkway, near the five mile marker, at around 3:30 p.m., according to the KSP. A preliminary investigation reveals that the car operated by 29-year-old Stephen Grace was northbound on the Pennyrile Parkway when his vehicle began to travel towards the median. Grace’s vehicle struck the end of a guardrail causing the vehicle to overturn multiple times landing on its top.
Grace, the only occupant of the vehicle, died in the crash. Grace was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.
The northbound lanes of the Pennyrile Parkway were closed for approximately two hours while crews cleared the scene.
The investigation continues into the cause of the collision.
