ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - Hundreds of friends, family and fellow officers have turned out for the funeral of a Kentucky State Police trooper, who was killed in a car wreck last week.

WDRB-TV in Louisville ( ) reports a long funeral procession led mourners of 42-year-old Sgt. David Gibbs of Campbellsville to his final resting place at Rineyville Baptist Cemetery on Tuesday. Police said Gibbs lost control of his cruiser Friday while going around a sharp curve in LaRue County.

As the funeral procession passed, onlookers stopped what they were doing to watch. Trooper Kendra Wilson said officers from Illinois, West Virginia, Iowa and Pennsylvania attended.

Trooper Jeff Gregory says officers want to honor Gibbs and show support for his family.
