A Dawson Springs man was killed on Friday in a traffic accident when his vehicle rolled several times.
Kentucky State Police say that 29-year-old Paul F. Dearien was the man killed in the accident around 7:00 Friday night.
Troopers say Dearien was driving southbound on I-69 in Hopkins County when his SUV went into the median. Dearien tried to get the vehicle back to the roadway, but wasn't able to regain control.
State Police say his SUV began to roll across northbound lanes and went off the road. Troopers say Dearien wasn't wearing his seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle.
Emergency crews were called, and Dearien was pronounced dead at the scene by the Hopkins County Coroner.
State police say that alcohol is being investigated as a factor in the crash.
