A car wreck has caused the death of one woman and hospitalized another after the vehicle of a 44 year old woman from Freeport, Illinois crossed over the center line of the road and struck a red Ford Explorer of a 50 year old woman. The 44 year old, who was driving a Kia Optima, was killed in the accident, and the woman driving the Ford explore was taken to University of Louisville Hospital for her injures.
It is still unclear what caused the Illinois woman to allow her car to drift into the lane of oncoming traffic, and witnesses state that they tried to alert the woman of her driving error just prior to the accident occurring. The car crash occurred on Manslick Road and Third Street. According to the initial reports, this accident is the fault of the Illinois woman, who should be responsible under Kentucky law to compensate the driver of the Ford Explorer for her medical bills, lost wages, and pain & suffering.
