A Nelson County woman died Thursday from injuries she suffered in a wreck last week, Kentucky State Police said.
Nancy Saunders, 50, of Coxs Creek was pronounced dead about 6:50 p.m. Thursday at University of Louisville Hospital.
Saunders had been at the hospital since Aug. 25, when she was involved in a crash on Ky. 245.
Investigators said Saunders was traveling south on Ky. 245 near the Jim Beam Distillery in Bullitt County about 3:45 p.m. when a northbound van driven by Rena Sallengs, 55, of Bardstown veered into the southbound lane for unknown reasons, state police said.

The vehicles collided, and both drivers were trapped in their vehicles. The Southeast Bullitt County Fire Department rescued the drivers, who were taken to area hospitals. Police said Sallengs had "serious but non life-threatening injuries."
