A Kentucky car accident involving two vehicles in Louisville kills a female driver and injures a teenager. The incident occurred at approximately 5:00 PM on Saturday evening, October 24, 2009.
The head on collision took place on Third Street Road in the Louisville area when Melissa Walker, 27, of Louisville was reportedly driving in an erratic fashion in the northbound lane of the roadway. According to Louisville Metro Police Department spokesperson Alicia Smiley, Walker’s car crossed into the southbound lane hitting another vehicle head on. Walker’s injuries were severe and she was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
The driver of the other car involved in the Kentucky accident was an unidentified 17-year-old female. Smiley said that she was transported by rescue crews to Kosair Children’s Hospital and was treated for non life-threatening injuries.
According to Smiley, there were no other passengers in the two cars involved in the early evening incident.
Local drivers were inconvenienced for several hours on Third Street Road between Lambourne Avenue and Mitchell Avenue as officers closed the road to investigate the accident and allow crews time to clean-up the accident scene.
The fatal Louisville car accident remains under investigation by local authorities.
