Rep. Brett Guthrie: ATV crash victim was husband to staffer
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Congressman Brett Guthrie (R-KY) has made a statement about the death of a Bowling Green man who was killed in a tragic accident.
On Sunday night, the Warren County Sheriff’s Office responded to White Avenue in reference to the missing person. Shortly after arrival, the agency requested the assistance of the Richardsville Volunteer Fire Department and Emergency Management to help search the farm property for the man.
