A Lebanon man who died after a head-on crash Wednesday recently had another incident involving a traffic accident.

Curry Sampson, 66, of Lebanon, was pronounced dead at University Medical Center Wednesday after he was involved in a head-on crash shortly before 11:30 a.m. near 337 W. Baddour Pkwy., said Lebanon police.

The story of the incident in June is similar to the story reported to police Wednesday.

Curry was involved in a single-car accident that damaged the Wilson Bank & Trust brick wall in June.

Police said Curry’s vehicle crossed the center dividing line while he travelled east on West Main.

Curry told police he didn’t know what happened and a witness said he did not stop and appeared to be passed out while driving the vehicle.

Curry also told police he did not know where he was or how he wrecked.

Police believe Curry was traveling west on West Baddour in a 2014 Ford Fiesta when he crossed into the eastbound lane and hit a 2000 Ford Expedition driven by Joanna Sherrill, 74, of Lebanon.

Sherrill was treated at UMC for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police believe Curry may have experienced a medical emergency before the crash.

Traffic Crash Reconstructionist Wayne Howard is handling the investigation.

Police believe both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash.
