After leaving the roadway, the vehicle struck a steel mailbox post, which forced the vehicle into a spin.

The vehicle operator was airlifted from the scene by Air Methods and was transported to University of Louisville Hospital were she was pronounced deceased. The investigation into this accident is ongoing by Trooper Justin Spears.
