Preliminary investigations revealed that Johnathan Maldonado, 41, was traveling south on Saint Rose Road when he attempted to cross Lebanon Bypass.

Haag was unable to avoid the collision as Maldonado’s vehicle entered the intersection. Troopers from the Kentucky State Police Post 15 were the first to arrive at the scene.

Tragically, both Maldonado and his daughter Jocelyn, who was a juvenile passenger, succumbed to their injuries and were pronounced deceased at the hospital.
