Around 11:15am Monday morning (11/14/16), Boone County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to an accident on Interstate 71 northbound at the 75 mile marker.
After arriving, deputies found that a 1990 Peterbilt Tractor Trailer was stationary in backed-up construction traffic, when a 2016 Nissan Sentra driven by a woman who has not been identified yet, did not stop and drove into the back of the trailer of the semi, which was hauling nearly 7,000 lbs of totes and skids. It is unclear why the woman did not stop. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
More details will be released as it becomes available. Reconstruction units are investigating the crash.
