LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A driver is killed when he tries to beat traffic, but instead crashes into another vehicle.

An 82-year-old man in a Jeep Cherokee was trying to cross Manner Gate just after noon Sunday. That's when he crashed into a Dodge Caravan going north on Breckinridge Lane. The Jeep flipped, trapping the driver and a passenger. The driver died in the vehicle, while the 80-year-old female passenger was taken to University Hospital.

The two passengers in the Caravan were transported to Baptist East Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
