Matlock was driving his Honda Civic near construction that was being done by the Kentucky Department of Highway when, according to police, he swerved to avoid the traffic and ran off the road and into a tree.
There was a passenger in his car who was taken to an area hospital with serious injuries, but was awake and alert. Neither men were wearing a seatbelt.
Matlock was known by some of his classmates as a gentle giant who excelled at playing the guitar.
