Four Cadiz people died and one Cadiz person was injured in a Saturday morning accident involving a passenger van and a farm tractor hauling a chisel plow on Ky. 274, or Rockcastle Road, about a mile north of U.S. 68.

Dalton R. McDougall, 19, Kimberly M. Shafer, 18, Lindsey M. Sholar, 17, and driver David M. Shoaf, 30, were pronounced dead at the scene by Trigg County Coroner John Mark Vinson.

Trooper Billy Over with the Kentucky State Police says four of the five people in the van died, while the fifth person, Brenden J. Breen, 18, was taken to Trigg County Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and later released, and that the driver of the tractor, Carl G. Calhoun, 58, of Cadiz, was uninjured. He added that Breen was the only one wearing a seat belt.

Over said the John Deere tractor was traveling southbound and the Toyota passenger van was traveling northbound, and for unknown reasons that are still under investigation, the two vehicles hit near the curve at Missionary Baptist Church at about 8 a.m.
