LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Louisville Metro Police are looking for a cause of a crash that claimed the life of an elderly woman and injured another Sunday morning.
The accident happened near the intersection of Seminole Avenue and Seneca Trail near a church parking lot in the Iroquois Neighborhood.
An investigation is underway, but police said they believe 97-year-old Ann Unterbrink pulled out in front of a van traveling down Seneca Trail.
Police said the time of day could have played a factor as to why there were no witnesses on the scene.
“It’s just not a heavily traveled area on the weekends. There may have been somebody that saw something and just maybe didn’t have an opportunity to stop,” Louisville Metro Police spokesperson Carey Klein said.
They said it’s unclear if Unterbrink ignored the stop sign or did not see the van. Police do not believe speed was in this accident.
