A Mount Washington man died from injuries sustained in a traffic accident Wednesday night in Mount Washington.
Joshua M. Bartley, 22, was involved in a single-car accident on U.S. 31 East by Oakbrooke Drive. Bullitt County Dispatch received a call for the wreck at 10:16 p.m.
Bartley was the passenger in the vehicle, a Dodge Stratus. It was driven by Heather Michelle Woloch, 19, of Shepherdsville, said Bullitt County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Danny Thompson.
The office is still investigating the cause of the accident, but Thompson said Woloch was driving southbound on the road when she lost control.
The car left the roadway and overturned several times, ejecting Bartley. The car then rolled over him, Thompson said.
Woloch also was ejected but not seriously hurt. She was released from the hospital by Thursday morning, he said.
"I would assume they were not wearing seat belts," Thompson said.
Bartley was taken to University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 11:34 p.m., said Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Jim Wesley.
Woloch has not been charged in the accident, but Thompson said he expects the case to be submitted to the commonwealth's attorney's office.

This is just terrible. I hope he is resting in peace. I knew Josh through a friend and he was at our house not long ago for our cookout at the beginning of the summer. Glad the girl is ok and pray there was no drinking involved. It's a shame that you don't know when its going to be the last time you're going to see someone. It truley saddens me.

Will miss you popping in to say Hi. You had to leave to soon. I pray for your family. You were a good friend to my son and he hurts for the lost of his long time friend.
Rest in Peace....The memories are in our hearts.

This is true and very sad it seems to happen often,
people especialy younger teens dont listen until its to late, what is it between 500 and 600 people get killed on kentucky highways each year most are alcohol related and the rest are speeding or just plain careless driving, and yes it pays to wear your seatbelts and another thing cell phones should never be used while driving pull over and stop if your going to call someone just makes good sense to be safe and not sorry
