A 22-year-old Taylor County man became the county's second traffic fatality of 1994 when he died early Monday morning in an accident on KY 55. Taylor County Deputy Sheriff Maurice Gorin, who investigated, said Brian Lee Knifley, 367 Grant Road, was traveling south on KY 55 at about 1:15 a.m. when his 1986 Chevrolet Cavalier evidently went out of control, hit an embankment and overturned several times. The accident occurred 3.9 miles south of Campbellsville about one-tenth of a mile from Fast Mart. Knifley was ejected from the vehicle during impact, according to Gorin. He was transported to Taylor County Hospital by the rescue squad where he was pronounced dead at 1:51 by Taylor County Coroner Terry Dabney. Dabney said Knifley suffered a serious head injury. The Taylor County Fire Department also responded. Gorin was assisted by Sheriff Sonny Cave and Kentucky State Police Trooper John Shipp. ~Obituaries of Taylor County, Kentucky, Volume V, compiled by Eunice Montgom!
