The woman, who has not been identified yet by police, was taken by ambulance to Gateway Medical Center.
Christian County Deputy Coroner Mike Stokes has released the name of the victim of a fatal wreck on I-24 from this morning.
Stokes identifies the woman as 34-year old Joelle Townsend of Kokomo, Indiana. Ms. Townsend was a Fort Campbell soldier.
State Police say the three-vehicle wreck happened at approximately 8:05 am near the 87 mile-marker when Ms. Towsend was driving an SUV westbound and lost control of her vehicle.
Ms. Towsend crossed the median and struck the rear tires of a tractor-trailer driven by 51-year old Tony Pritchard of Vincennes, Indiana. The collision caused the SUV to spin around and strike the left rear side of a pickup driven by 85-year old Loriston Lovelady of Hopkinsville.
Ms. Towsend, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle upon impact with the tractor-trailer. She was pronounced dead on the scene. Pritchard and Ms. Lovelady went uninjured.
