Madisonville, Ky. (WBKO) – Tuesday evening, the Kentucky State Police in Madisonville was called to investigate a fatal collision involving a commercial vehicle.

A preliminary investigation revealed 55-year-old Jesse Steven Gott, of Dexter, Mo., was operating a 2015 Peterbilt, with trailer-in-tow, southbound on I-69.

For an unknown reason, near mile marker 101, Mr. Gott’s vehicle crossed the median and both northbound lanes of travel.
