The Laurel County coroner has confirmed an Ohio man died in a crash on I-75 over the weekend. State Police identified the man as 54-year-old Eddie Phillips from Cincinnati. State police say were called to the scene, near the 47 mile marker, around 12:30 p.m Saturday. Troopers say when the crash happened, traffic was already backed up on the interstate because of a previous crash. They say the victim’s car rear-ended a semi that was also sitting in the backed-up traffic. KSP officials believe the weather played a role in the crash as the roads were rain slickened.
