LYON COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

The Kentucky State Police is reporting that one person is dead after a crash involving  two vehicles at the 37 mile marker near Kuttawa, Kentucky on Saturday, September 3.

K.S.P. arrived on the scene around 2 p.m. and a preliminary investigation shows that Leslie D. Cunningham, 71, of Evansville, IN, was operating a gray 2015 Subaru WRX traveling westbound in the right hand lane of Interstate 24. Joseph M. Mouser, 73, of Rineyville, KY, was operating a gray 2007 Ford F150 traveling west bound in the left hand lane just beside Cunningham’s Subaru. Cunningham turned left into the path of Mouser’s F150 pickup in what appears to be an attempt to make a U-turn across Interstate 24.  Mouser could not avoid striking Cunningham’s vehicle in the driver side.

Mary D. Fugate, 72, of Louisville, KY was a passenger in Cunningham’s vehicle. She sustained multiple blunt force injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lyon County Coroner.

Cunningham was air lifted from the scene to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, IN with non-life threatening injuries.

Mouser sustained some minor abrasions on his arm but refused medical treatment.
