VINE GROVE, Ky. (WBKO) – Kentucky State Police say on Tuesday at approximately 8:21 p.m. ET, troopers responded to 645 Stanley Allen Drive in the Vine Grove community of Meade County to investigate a vehicle versus pedestrian collision.

Troopers say a 1998 Plymouth Voyager van was backing up to a residence to unload household items.

Unaware to the driver, Joseph Allison, 31, a two-year-old child had climbed into the back hatch entrance of the van.
