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.
