Around 11:45 AM today, deputies were dispatched to the 7700 block of Bradford Road in Northeast Jefferson County in reference to a vehicle located upside down in Turkey Creek. It was unknown how long the vehicle had been there. Upon arrival deputies discovered a white older model Chevy Cavalier on its roof in the water. It appeared that the vehicle had struck the bridge and rolled down the hill into the creek.
The vehicle was discovered this morning when a citizen was out riding his property and saw the vehicle. He then called 911. Once the vehicle was removed from the water, it was discovered that there were three occupants in the vehicle. All three, a female driver and two male passengers, were deceased. It is unknown when the accident actually occurred.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team is conducting the investigation into the fatal crash. The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office has retrieved the bodies and will be working to make a positive identification of the victims and locate the next of kin.
