Two women were killed Wednesday night in a head-on crash of two SUVs in Madison County, according to Richmond police.

The wreck occurred about 9:30 p.m. on Ky. 52 near the Bluegrass Army Depot east of Richmond.

Madison County Coroner Jimmy Cornelison identified the victims as Kimberly Holt, who was pronounced dead at the scene, and Jane French, who died later of her injuries at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

Both victims were Madison County residents, he said.

Cornelison said it was raining at the time of the crash, which could have been a factor.

An investigation is continuing.
