HODGENVILLE, KY (Sun 19 Nov 2017) - Kentucky State Police Post 4 Troopers responded to a two vehicle fatal collision in LaRue County Saturday night, November 18, 2017.

On November 18, 2017 at approximately 9:57pmET, KSP received a call from the LaRue Co. Sheriff's Office asking for assistance on a two vehicle accident on KY 210 (Campbellsville Road) at the intersection of Borders Curve Loop.

A 2013 Chevy Equinox with an unidentified driver was headed West on KY 210 when for unknown reasons, the vehicle crossed the center line and entered the Eastbound lane.

Stephanie Jensen (28) of Magnolia, KY, was operating a 2010 Nissan Altima Eastbound when her vehicle was struck head-on. She was later pronounced dead at the scene by the LaRue County Coroner. The operator of the Chevy Equinox fled the scene on foot before emergency personnel arrived.

KSP Troopers along with Officers from Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, LaRue Co Sheriff's Office, Hodgenville Police Department, and members of the LaRue Co. Fire Department searched the area for the missing driver but were unsuccessful in locating anyone.

The accident is still under investigation by KSP Trooper/Reconstructionist Dewan Kelly.
