Woman, 47, killed in I-64 accident
A Nicholasville woman was killed in a multi-vehicle accident on Interstate 64 near the 143 mile marker Saturday afternoon, according to a press release from Kentucky State Police Post 8.
Betty Mullins, 47, was pronounced dead on the scene by Rowan County Coroner John Northcutt. She was driving a 2012 Kia Sorento eastbound on I-64 when she dropped off the left shoulder of the roadway and overcorrected. She entered into the slow lane of eastbound travel where she overcorrected again, crossing the median into oncoming westbound traffic.
Mullins collided with a Freightliner tractor trailer and a Chevrolet Suburban operated by Bart Taylor, 41, of Oakland, Ill. Mr. Taylor and a passenger, Glenna Taylor, 39, were airlifted from the scene to St. Claire Medical Center in Morehead and later to the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
The driver of the tractor trailer was not injured and refused medical treatment.
The highway was closed for several hours and traffic diverted to U.S. 60, where the highway yard sale was taking place.
Rowan County EMS, Morehead Fire Department and Olive Hill Fire Department responded to the scene along with the KSP.
