We are learning more about the truck driver killed in that crash near Munfordville.

This is a picture of Kenneth Laymon of Alabama from his Facebook page.

Authorities say the 45-year-old crossed the median early Friday morning and collided with the Esh family van.

On the page, there is a note that asks for prayers for friends and family from Alabama to Kentucky.

It also says on site that he was a pro wrestler, wrestling under the name of Kenny Valentine.

Lori Cook says her brother, Kenneth Laymon, was a trained truck driver and had a lot of experience driving.

She said, “All the nasty comments about fatigue, about drugs or alcohol or lack of sleep, that's not the way he was. He taught people how to drive semi-trucks. All the negative things that the public is saying, before you judge, just know who you're talking about, because he's a person too.”
