The Jefferson County Sheriff said in a news release that they were called to the crash at 6:59 p.m. about a half mile west of Stoney Creek Road.
“It was really bad," Dave Schneider said. "I drove up and I drove right by and [I saw] that a combine has hit a car and it looked like a pretty bad accident."
Chopper four video captured the aftermath of the deadly collision between the farming combine and a sport utility vehicle. According to neighbors, they haven't seen a deadly crash this bad in the area in a very long time.
“When it happens that quickly that makes you scared," Jim Battist said.
Battist is a farmer and he’s lived in the area all his life. He said although this situation is a sad one, it’s also a reminder to maintain caution while operating farming equipment on the county road.
