An employee at a well-known Louisville factory owned by Carbide Industries, which has for decades been in the business of supplying the liquid chemicals used in this country's steel mills, died recently while on duty at the plant. While the precise cause of the accident is under investigation, initial indications from the 911 call were that the worker had been electrocuted.
A young woman died in a recent Kentucky car accident. Police are indicating they have evidence that alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash and are expecting to file criminal charges against the driver who caused the accident.
