Mr. Gregory Monte Hale, 21, of 423 Cardwell St., died Friday, March 3, 1995 at the Woodford Memorial Hospital, Versailles, as a

Born August 31, 1973 in Fort Knox, he was the son of Robert L. and Virginia Brown Hale. He was the husband of Melissa Gullett Hale, 
a line operator for YA America, Inc. and had attended Cornishville Baptist Church.

Additional survivors include: paternal grandmother, Mrs. Alla Hale, Stanford; one son, Gregory Blake Hale, Harrodsburg; three sisters,

Brothers-In-Law Killed On Icy Parkway Police blamed snow and ice covered roads for the late night automobile accident that claimed
the lives of two Harrodsburg brothers-in-law last Thursday. Bryan Keith Gullet, 25, of 423 Cardwell Ave., was declared dead at the accident 
scene at about 10:43 p.m. on March 2 by Woodford County Coroner Steve Ward. Gregory M. Hale, 21, of 2318 Bohon Rd., died almost 
two hours later at Woodford Hospital in Versailles at approximately 12:20 a.m. on March 3, according to Woodford police officer Jimmy 
Sewell. The two men were on their way to work at Y.A. America in Versailles when the accident occurred. Officer Sewell, who investigated 
the accident, said Hale was driving a 1988 Chevrolet pickup truck east bound on Blue Grass Parkway and hit a slick spot on the Kentucky 
River Bridge at the Woodford/Anderson County lines. A semi truck, driven by Richard A. Shuler, Jr. of Ohio, was following Hale at a 
short distance, Sewell said. He said Hale lost control of the truck on the slick snow covered road and struck the bridge on the left side 
of the road, which caused the vehicle to spin around facing west bound toward the semi. Shuler attempted to stop, according to the 
investigating officer, but could not and struck the pick up head on. Woodford police said the semi carried the smaller truck about 
152 feet further down the road after impact. According to Sewell, the semi driver was not injured. No one in the pick up was 
wearing a seat belt, according to police.
