A Bardstown man was killed in a one-vehicle accident over the weekend in Bullitt County. 

According to Bullitt County Coroner Dave Billings, 25-year-old Matthew Curry was driving near 959 Deatsville Road early Saturday morning when his vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree. 

Curry was pronounced dead at the scene.  No passengers were in the vehicle at the time of the accident, and no other vehicles were involved. 

The incident occurred a few minutes before 1 a.m. Saturday, and Billings said speed may have been a factor.

The Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating. 

The funeral service for Curry was held Tuesday, and Barlow Funeral Home handled the arrangements. Curry’s full obituary can be viewed on page A3 of the Wednesday, Oct. 14 edition of The Kentucky Standard.
