Single car wreck claims life of man

A 29-year-old man was killed Sunday night in a one-car wreck on Gibson Road near Rollingwood Estates.

The man was identified Monday morning by Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey as Patrick “Tyrone” Taylor.

Huskey said Taylor died of blunt force trauma.

The wreck occurred about 10:30 p.m. Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said Taylor was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to sheriff’s office reports, Taylor was eastbound on Gibson Road when the 2007 Acura he was driving exited the left side of the road. The car went back across the road, where it struck a brick mailbox and then rolled several times ending up in the front yard of a house.

Pace said the wreck is under investigation and speed was a factor.
