Woman dies in Harrison County crash

One woman died Wednesday morning after a head-on collision between a tractor-trailer and a pickup truck, Harrison County Sheriff Bruce Hampton said.

The identity of the deceased has not been released pending notification of family, Hampton said.

The woman was driving south in a Chevy pickup when she crossed the center line and into the path of a northbound tractor-trailer carrying a load of Post-it Notes from the nearby 3M plant, Hampton said.

Eric Hanson, 34, of Wisconsin, was treated for minor injuries at Harrison Memorial Hospital in Cynthiana and released.

The crash happened about 8 a.m. on U.S. 27 about 5 miles north of Cynthiana.

U.S, 27 was closed for several hours, reopening to traffic at 2:30 p.m., Hampton said.
