Since the construction of the US 127 Bypass, many accidents have occurred at the intersections with existing roads. Among those intersections, one has been the site of the most serious and deadly crashes.

The latest fatality, Peggy Groce, 67 of Albany, died Thursday from injuries she received on March 22 at the intersection of KY HWY 738 (Wolf River Dock RD).

According to Lonnie Scott, Clinton County Director of Emergency Management, Groce's death brings the total number of fatalities to four at that location.

Many people have been also been injured from the high number of incidents.

It is unclear why the site is so dangerous since visibility is clear for both north and southbound lanes when crossing or pulling out from KY 738.

Clinton County Officials have been in contact with the State Highway Highway department to try and rectify the problem and make it safer.

Other intersections along the Bypass have also been the site of a high number of serious crashes, although that number seems to be decreasing.

the US 127 and KY HWY 1590 intersection has seen a decrease in incidents as well as US 127 and KY HWY 90.

The US 127 and KY Hwy 90 site now has advanced traffic lights and signage which may have helped make that site safer.
