BOONE COUNTY, KY (FOX19) - Officials are investigating an accident that killed two people early Sunday afternoon.
At 11:40 a.m., the Boone County Sheriffs were investigating an injury accident on Westbound Interstate 275 at the 5 mile marker.
While deputies were working on that accident, another occurred at the 4.6 mile marker. Police say a Mazda SUV on the eastbound side of the highway lost control and swerved to the right side and struck a pole. This caused the vehicle to flip and eject both the driver and passenger.
Both occupants were pronounced dead at the scene. They have been identified as Brittany Holtzman, 22, of Independence, and Sam Roberts, 25, of Bennington, Ind.
