Fatal Accident Near Kentucky Speedway Exit On I-71

Posted On July 06, 2017

A person is dead after a crash this morning in Gallatin County.

The single car accident happened on Interstate 71 near the Kentucky Speedway exit in Sparta.

At least one person was killed. It’s unclear right now if there were any other injuries.

Southbound lanes of the highway have been closed while police investigate. The I-71 closure could impact anybody heading down to Sparta early for Thursday night’s NASCAR truck series race at the Kentucky Speedway.
