Police: Independence couple struck, killed on Interstate 75 after changing tire on vehicle


GEORGETOWN, Kentucky — The Scott County sheriff says a married couple who apparently had finished changing a tire on their vintage vehicle by the side of Interstate 75 have been struck and killed by at least one other vehicle.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1dbdseO ) reports 70-year-old Timothy Cantrell and 63-year-old Susan Cantrell of Independence were killed Sunday afternoon on I-75. Sheriff Tony Hampton says two vehicles went out of control and at least one struck the couple, who were standing behind a 1939 Dodge. The two were killed instantly.

Authorities think the Cantrells had finished changing a tire before they were hit.

Hampton says there was a jack lying by the Dodge and a fresh tire had been put on the car.
