MURRAY – A Wednesday morning collision on KY 121 North resulted in the death of a Murray woman and a passenger being seriously injured, according to the Calloway County Sheriff’s Office.
CCSO said in a news release that deputies responded at approximately 10 a.m. Wednesday to a head-on collision on KY 121 North. The driver of a Penske box truck, Donald Wallace, 62, of Calvert City, was northbound on KY 121 North while the driver of a 2004 Toyota Camry was southbound. Wallace told deputies that the Camry came into his lane and he was unable to do anything because of the large drop-off on the right side of the roadway. After the initial collision, the truck exited the roadway to the right into a ditch.
The Camry spun around, leaving the roadway on the left into the ditch and hitting a fence. The Camry was operated by Dorothy Tucker, 65, of Murray, who had to be extracted from the vehicle by Calloway County Fire-Rescue. Calloway County EMS attempted to render aide, but Tucker was pronounced dead on the scene by Calloway County Coroner Ricky Garland.
The passenger, Patricia Dunlap of Murray, was life-flighted to TriStar Skyline Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee with unknown injuries. Deputies were unable to speak with the passenger due to the extent of her injuries, CCSO said.
