Two-vehicle collision kills one person in Richmond

A two-vehicle crash Wednesday in Richmond left one person dead and another injured.

The crash happened about 2 p.m. at Tates Creek Avenue and Gray Oaks Drive, according to WKYT, the Herald-Leader’s reporting partner.

Jimmy Cornelison, Madison County Coroner, told the Herald-Leader a pickup truck and a car collided.

Peggy Smith, 63, of Richmond, was driving the car and died from the crash. Another person was taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, WKYT reported.

Cornelison said it appeared wet roads may have been a factor in the crash. Cornelison said it appeared Smith’s vehicle was in the wrong lane of traffic when the accident happened.
