Delana Kissinger, age 54, died Tuesday after being severely injured in a Louisville, Kentucky car crash. Ms. Kissinger resided on the 1500 block of Raydale Drive. She had been driving northbound on Robbs Lane, near the Outer Loop when a southbound vehicle crossed into Ms. Kissinger's lane of traffic and caused the Kentucky car crash. Police reports indicate that the southbound vehicle may have been traveling at a high rate of speed. Delana Kissinger was taken from the scene of the accident to UL Hospital to be treated for multiple blunt force injures. She died around 11;30 p.m. from those injures. There was a passenger in Ms. Kissinger's vehicle who was also treated for injures from this collision.
Regardless of the speed of the southbound vehicle, drivers in Kentucky have a legal obligation to operate their vehicles within the proper lanes and keep their vehicles under control. Ms. Kissinger's Estate and her family will be able to seek justice from this accident through a Kentucky wrongful death legal claim. Ms. Kissinger's passenger will be able to be compensated for her medical treatment and other related damages through a personal injury claim.
