Marion Phillips of West Liberty was driving west in a Chrysler Sebring just east of Salyersville when he lost control while entering a steep right curve about 11 a.m., according to a news release from state police.
The Sebring veered into the eastbound lane and collided head-on with a Peterbilt tractor.
Phillips' passenger, Christy Mullins, died at the scene.
Phillips was taken to Pikeville Medical Center with serious injuries, state police said.
The driver of the tractor, Dewey Lowe, was treated at the scene.
