LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A woman was killed in a four vehicle crash on U.S. 42 in Prospect Monday morning.

According to Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell, the crash took place at about 10:30 a.m. on U.S. 42, just east of Bridgepointe Boulevard.

"Our preliminary investigation reveals that the driver of a white Nissan was going east on U.S. 42," Mitchell said. "For some unknown reason, the operator of that vehicle crossed over the center line and struck a green Subaru truck." Two other vehicles were also involved in the crash. 

The female driver of the Nissan, later identified as 52-year-old Stacey Minors, died at the scene. 

Mitchell said the driver of the truck was also taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

"It was a very horrific crash," Mitchell said. "And unfortunately, a loss of life, also, was included with this."
