Weakly identified the female driver to be 30-year-old Erin Miller, of New Albany, IN. Miller died of her injuries shortly after being transported to the University of Louisville Hospital around 1 p.m. on Tuesday. According to the report, Millers Camry was T-boned by a dump truck traveling on LaGrange, attempting to avoid a red light. Miller who was turning left at a green light on the Gene Snyder Freeway was struck by the dump truck in a side-impact collision on the drivers side.
Two other vehicles were struck by Millers Camry as it careened across traffic, hitting a white pickup truck and a DHL delivery vehicle. The drivers of the dump truck and the DHL delivery vehicle were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries, which were not life threatening, and their names have not yet been released by authorities.
Truck driver negligence is a common cause of truck accidents. In this case, blowing through a traffic light that has already turned red cost one driver their life and impacted three others.
