Kentucky State Police are investigating two unrelated deaths that took place in Trimble County on Saturday — the first in a single car accident early Saturday morning and the second a domestic shooting that took place later that evening.

In the first, a 28-year-old Trimble County man died in a single car accident Saturday morning on Barebone Road just west of Bedford.

According to Kentucky State Police, Zachary Miles Taylor, of Rowlett Avenue, Bedford, was traveling west on Barebone Road less than a mile from U.S. 42 when his vehicle dropped off the right side of the roadway, crossed back across the highway and went off the left side of the pavement before traveling up a guardrail and through a wooded area before hitting some trees and overturning in nearby Barebone Creek.

The creek bed was mostly dry and Taylor, who was wearing a seat belt, died from trauma sustained in the crash, said the Trimble County Coroner’s Office.

The crash was reported by a passerby at 7:53 a.m. but authorities are unsure when the accident actually took place. Taylor was pronounced dead at the scene. Toxicology tests will be conducted and the crash is still under investigation.

The second incident took place late Saturday evening when a domestic dispute led to shots being fired inside and outside of a Bedford residence with Timothy Luke Webster, 48, Madison, pronounced dead at the scene after being fatally shot in the chest by his father, Herman Webster.

According to an investigation by KSP, Timothy Webster allegedly arrived at the residence, located at 32 Callis Lane, late Saturday evening in an intoxicated state and engaged in a verbal altercation with his father, making threats and eventually firing several shots inside the home.

Herman Webster attempted to flee the residence but was followed by Timothy Webster. While still on the property, Herman Webster allegedly fired a separate firearm, striking his son in the chest. Timothy Webster was pronounced dead at the scene by the Trimble County Coroner’s Office.

There have been no arrests and no charges filed in the incident at this time. The investigation remains ongoing.
