  • Coroner: Thurman drove in fatal wreck

    Justin Thurman was driving the pickup truck that veered off Highway 44 more than a year ago, killing him instantly.
    That is the ruling of the Anderson County Coroner’s office, which had to wait for DNA results from the state police lab in Frankfort before making the determination.
    The news puts to rest a year-long question as to who was driving the truck, Thurman or the man who turned out to be his passenger, Kristian Baxter.
