UPDATE | Driver and child dead after crash on Outer Loop

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two people, including a 6-month-old baby boy, are dead after a crash on the Outer Loop Tuesday morning.

According to Louisville Metro Police, it happened just after 10 a.m., near the intersection of Outer Loop and Air Commerce Drive, just east of Grade Lane. That's where police say a driver in a gray Dodge was westbound when he or she lost control and crossed to other side, where the vehicle was hit by a box truck.

Police say the driver of the Dodge and the child were pronounced dead at the scene. It's not clear the relationship between the two, or how old the child is. The driver of the box truck suffered minor injuries.

The driver of the box truck was uninjured.

The LMPD traffic unit is investigating, but officials say it's too early to tell if rain soaked roads could have contributed to the crash.
