Lexington woman dies after wreck

A Lexington woman injured in a Friday morning crash on Interstate 64 in Woodford County died Saturday.

Emily Rhoads Kapp, 27, was in one of three cars that collided in a construction zone at mile marker 63, near the Midway exit, according to a news release from the Fayette County coroner's office. Kapp's vehicle was hit from behind by a pickup whose driver apparently did not see that traffic was stopped in the construction zone.

Kapp was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, where she was pronounced dead in the neurosurgical intensive care unit at 9:29 a.m. Saturday, according to the release.
