LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a woman is dead after a dump truck ran a red light in east Louisville. The crash happened on La Grange Road near the Gene Snyder Freeway around noon.
The coroner's office says 30-year-old Erin Miller of New Albany was pronounced dead at the scene at the University of Louisville's ER at 12:56 p.m. An autopsy and a cause of death is pending, but the coroner's office says it is most likely blunt force injuries.
Police say the woman in the black Camry had the green light and was trying to turn left when the red dump truck ran the light and slammed into her.
LMPD spokeswoman Carey Klain tells WDRB News, "It did appear, according to witnesses at this time, that truck did accelerate to try to make it through the light which was already red at the time."
The car was then hit by two other trucks. The driver of the dump truck and two other trucks had minor injuries.
Police say it's too early in the investigation to determine whether any charges will be filed.
