85-year-old Harlan County woman is killed when two pickups collide

An 85-year-old woman was killed when her pickup truck collided with another pickup in Harlan County, Kentucky State Police said.

Evelyn Philpot of Evarts died at the scene on Ky. 38 in the River Ridge community, police said.

It happened about 3:50 p.m. Monday, according to troopers at the Harlan post.

Troopers said Philpot was driving east when she apparently lost control of her 2000 Chevrolet S-10 truck because of wet weather, struck a guardrail and collided with a 2011 Dodge Ram truck driven John Bowman of Wallins.

Bowman was not injured, police said.

Alcohol and drugs are not suspected, and the case remains under investigation, police said.
