Derby Week In Louisville, Kentucky Gets Off To A Deadly Start With Apparent Drunk Driving Fatality

An unidentified 24 year old women sustained fatal injuries when the Honda Civic she was driving westbound on Hurstbourne Parkway was hit head on by a vehicle traveling eastbound in the the westbound lane. The Louisville Metro Police Department believe that alcohol was a factor. The crash occurred at 2:30 a.m.

This is a festive time of year here in Louisville with the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby less than a week away. Unfortunately, some people cannot be responsible and then tragedies like this occur. Hopefully, the accident investigation will answer all of the questions the woman’s friends and family surely have about how and why this happened.
