TRIGG COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A Cadiz resident was killed in a crash in Trigg County Tuesday morning.

It happened around 9:15 a.m. Tuesday on Kings Chapel Road about four miles south of Cadiz, Kentucky.

Kentucky State Police say Leslie Baker, 26 of Cadiz was driving a 2002 Ford Explorer southbound on Kings Chapel Road. Mike Wallace, 49 of Cadiz was driving a 1996 Freightliner semi, pulling an empty flatbed trailer northbound on Kings Chapel Road.

Preliminary investigation shows that for an unknown reason Baker crossed over the center line and ran off the left shoulder of the roadway and into the path of Wallace's semi, striking it head on.

The Trigg County Coroner pronounced Baker dead at the scene.

Baker and Wallace were wearing seatbelts, according to KSP.
