Laurel woman killed in single-vehicle crash

A Laurel County woman was killed Sunday in a single-vehicle crash, Sheriff John Root said in a news release issued Monday.

Nancy Salazar, 49, of Keavy was traveling south on KY 312 when one wheel of her pickup truck apparently dropped off the roadway, causing her to lose control.

The truck hit a tree head-on. Salazar was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

The wreck happened Sunday about 6:10 p.m, approximately eight miles south of London, according to the release from Root's office.
