LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One person was killed early today in a crash on Algonquin Parkway near Churchill Downs.

It happened just after 7:20 a.m., near the intersection of Algonquin Parkway and Compton Street, not far from Winkler Avenue.

According to a WDRB reporter at the scene, it appears a black SUV slammed into a tree. LMPD spokeswoman Officer Carey Klain says the victim was a woman in her 30s. She was not wearing a seatbelt.

Klain says excessive speed may have been a factor in the crash.

Algonquin Parkway was expected to remain closed for several hours while crews worked to clear the scene.
