LaRue school principal killed in crash

The principal of Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Hodgenville was killed Saturday after she apparently lost control of her car on Ky. 84.

Amber Thurman, 47, of Hodgenville was traveling west on Ky. 84 early Saturday morning in an Oldsmobile Intrigue when the vehicle crossed the center line. Thurman apparently over-corrected and lost control of her vehicle, which struck an embankment and overturned. Thurman was ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene by the LaRue County coroner.

The investigation by the Kentucky State Police is ongoing.
