LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A fatal accident at Beckley Station Road and Shelbyville Road killed one man Thursday afternoon.

Police said a man driving a white truck was heading westbound on Shelbyville when he collided with a green SUV going east and trying to turn left. Police said the truck continued to spin and crashed into a white SUV. At some point the driver of the truck was ejected from the vehicle. Shannon Lyons heard the crash. She happens to be a nurse and she ran over to help the man.

“First thing your taught is check for a pulse. So, I checked and there wasn't one, so I started performing CPR,” Lyons said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman in the green SUV suffered minor injuries and the person in the white SUV was not hurt. 

Police said they are investigating whether speed was a factor.
