A Letcher County woman died Sunday afternoon after a crash on Ky. 7 in the Carbon Glow community.
Lesa F. Slone, 45, of Blackey. was driving her 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier when she lost control and the car overturned several times before stopping on an embankment near a railroad track; police responded at 5:12 p.m., according to Kentucky State Police.
Slone was ejected from the car and died at the scene. A passenger, David D. Fields, 32, was taken to Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital. Neither Slone or Fields was wearing a seatbelt. Wet road conditions appear to have contributed to this collision, and impairment is not suspected, state police said.
