Louisville woman killed in Shelby County crash

A Louisville woman is dead after a car traveling in the opposite direction crossed the center line and hit her Friday afternoon.

David E. Moore Jr., 32, of Taylorsville was traveling north on Ky. 55 (Taylorsville Road) in Shelby County when his Mercedes crossed into oncoming traffic, Kentucky State Police Trooper Bernis Napier said.

Moore’s car collided with 57-year-old Julie H. Mundt’s 2013 Toyota Corolla, which was traveling south, at 4:24 p.m.

Mundt was pronounced dead at the scene. Moore was taken to University of Louisville Hospital to be treated for injuries.

Police are investigating why Moore crossed into Mundt’s lane.
