An Elkton woman was killed in a single-vehicle wreck early this morning.
Kentucky State Police say 56-year old Sheila Austin of Elkton was northbound on KY 181 about two miles north of Guthrie near Cal-Maine Foods just after midnight when she lost control of her vehicle and ran off the right shoulder of the road.
Ms. Austin over-corrected and traveled into the southbound lane before running off the road again and her vehicle over-turned. Police say Ms. Austin was not wearing her seat belt and she was ejected, with Todd County Coroner Bob Whittlesey pronouncing her dead at the scene.
Trooper Ben Cox was assisted at the scene by the Todd County Sheriff’s Office, Guthrie Police and Todd County EMS.
