MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– The southbound lanes of I-75 are blocked due to a vehicle vs. pedestrian crash that left one woman dead.

“The investigation indicates she may have been hit by more than one car, which unfortunately oftentimes happens with a collision on the interstate,” said Trooper Robert Purdy. “Obviously there’s going to be a lot of questions that we’re going to try to answer. I don’t believe anybody was inside that abandoned vehicle. We’re just trying to figure out who the deceased is. There’s a lot of things we’re going to try to piece together.”

The crash happened near mile marker 73 around 6:15 p.m.

A reconstruction unit was called to the scene.

Berea Police are going to help redirect motorists. Traffic will be split between passing the scene on the left shoulder and exiting the interstate on Exit 76 to US 25.
