A Kentucky couple is dead after being hit by an oncoming vehicle earlier Wednesday morning. Police say 25-year-old Robert Vincent of Sweeden, Kentucky was driving a truck when he failed to see a car stopped in front of him.

The accident happened near the intersection of 31 W and KY 743. Vincent swerved to miss the car and slid into oncoming traffic. Vincent hit the Edmoson county couple head-on. Sixty-year-old Dora Costa and 64-year-old Camillo Costa of Brownsville were both pronounced dead on the scene.

Police say the Costas were not wearing their seatbelts but Vincent was. Drugs and alcohol are not suspected to be factors in the accident. Vincent was treated and released from the Bowling Green Medical Center.
