2 killed in separate wrecks


February 03, 2010
Two men were killed last week in separate crashes.

Larry W. Cecil, 69, of Louisville died last Wednesday morning when his 2005 Cadillac Deville went off of Interstate 64 and struck a rock wall.

Officer Terry Bartle of the Harrison County Sheriff's Department said Cecil was traveling west on I-64 when the crash occurred near the 99-mile marker at about 5:20 a.m.

The Cadillac went off of the north side of the interstate and traveled about 41 feet before striking the rock wall. Cecil was transported by ambulance to Harrison County Hospital in Corydon, where he was pronounced dead of internal injuries, Bartle said.

The following morning, at about 6, James R. Bratcher, 41, of Depauw was killed when his 1992 Chevrolet Blazer ran off of S.R. 64 east of New Salisbury and struck a tree.

Bartle said Bratcher was traveling east when his vehicle went off of the south side of the road before hitting a tree.

Bratcher was pronounced dead at the scene, Bartle said.

Both men were traveling alone at the time of their crashes.

Police said both crashes are under investigation.
