KSP Investigating Deadly Muhlenberg Co. Crash

Kentucky State Police are investigating a deadly accident in Muhlenberg County which happened Sunday afternoon.

KSP says two vehicles collided at the intersection of U.S. 431 and Cleaton Rd. in Cleaton around 1 p.m.

Troopers say 31-year-old Amanda Travis of Central City was driving a 2006 Jeep Compass northbound on U.S. 431 when she approached the intersection at Cleaton Rd. As Travis approached the intersection, troopers say a 2005 Ford Focus driven by 79-year-old Christine Dennison of Central City entered Travis' lane.

KSP Dennison was attempting to cross both lanes of U.S. 431, and Travis was unable to avoid the collision. Travis' vehicle hit Dennison's vehicle in the driver-side door.

Muhlenberg County Coroner Larry Vincent pronounced Dennison dead at the scene. Authorities say Dennison was wearing a seatbelt. KSP says Travis was not wearing a seatbelt and was flown to St. Vincent Evansville for unknown injuries.
