Entry Description
Perry County (Cannelton): A late night crash east of Cannelton claimed the lives of two Tell City residents and placed a Hawesville, KY woman in critical condition.

Initial investigation shows that at approximately 12:30 this morning (Central Time), Terry K. Burden, Jr., 35, Tell City, was traveling eastbound on State Road 66 near the 84 mile marker. This is located near the Cannelton Locks and Dam, east of Cannelton. Burden, driving a 1999 Mercury Cougar at what investigators believe to be a high rate of speed, lost control of the Mercury and left the south side of the roadway, striking a tree head on. Upon impact, the vehicle caught fire.

Burden and a front seat passenger, Brian W. Nugent, 49, Tell City, were both trapped in the vehicle and pronounced deceased by the Perry County Coroner. A back seat passenger, Sarah M. Metcalf, 27, Hawesville, KY, was able to climb from the wreckage. She was first transported to Owensboro, KY, later taken to Louisville, KY, and is listed in critical condition, suffering a shattered pelvis and internal injuries.

State Police was assisted by the Perry County Sheriff’s Department, Cannelton Fire Department, Perry County EMS, and the Perry County Coroner.

This crash remains under investigation.
