A woman died after a head-on collision of two pickup trucks Thursday afternoon in Boyle County.
Betty Gayle “Sue” Wethington, 53, of Parksville, died at the scene of the crash on U.S. 150, about five miles west of Danville, said Boyle County deputy coroner Mike Wilder, who is also the county’s emergency management director.
Wilder said the crash occurred just after 2 p.m. It was raining at the time, and that was a probable factor in the crash, he said.
Wethington was driving one of the pickups. The other driver was taken to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, Wilder said.
He said U.S. 150, also known as Perryville Road, was closed for more than three hours while officials investigated.
