A Christian County woman was killed in a head-on collision on Dawson Springs Road this morning.
The incident happened around 6:40 near the 13-mile-marker, which is about two miles north of the bypass. Christian County Sheriff’s Captain Chris Miller said 55-year old Stella Mart of Greenville Road was attempting to pass another vehicle when she hit a northbound flatbed truck.
Ms. Mart's car then left the roadway and collided with a ditch, ejecting her from the wreckage. She was pronounced dead on the scene by Deputy Coroner Mike Stokes.
The driver of the truck, Carol Larkins of Dawson Springs, was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for treatment of chest and shoulder injuries that didn’t appear to be life-threatening.
