Woman killed in Trigg County crash

CADIZ, KY (KFVS) -

A Hazel, Kentucky woman is killed in a deadly crash in Trigg County.

Kentucky State Police say an s-u-v driven by 28 year old Ronda Lenton of Murray was traveling east on Highway 68, when she pulled into the center turn lane. For some unknown reason she turned abruptly into the path of a tractor trailer rig which was also eastbound. The semi-truck crashed into the passenger side of the s-u-v.

The impact caused the s-u-v to flip. Troopers say the crash killed a passenger in Lenton's vehicle. The victim has been identified as 32 year old Andrea Hite of Hazel, Kentucky. Meanwhile, Lenton was flown to a Nashville hospital where she's in critical condition. The driver of the tractor trailer was treated and released from a local hospital. State police ticketed him for his load being to wide and too long to be operating on Highway 68. The truck driver is from Whitehall, New York.
