Louisville woman killed after SUV crashes into building on National Turnpike

The woman veered left, losing control of the vehicle before it went into the wrong lanes, hit a curb and eventually struck the corner of a building, LMPD said.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Metro Police (LMPD) said a woman died following an early morning crash on the National Turnpike Saturday morning.

Police say around 1:00 a.m. a woman and male passenger were traveling southbound in the right lane of the National Turnpike.

For some unknown reason, police say the woman veered left causing the SUV to rotate around and as she tried to regain control, the vehicle crossed into the northbound lanes before striking a curb and eventually hitting the corner of a building in the 8200 block of the National Turnpike. 

Emergency Medical Services were called to the scene and both the man and woman were transported to the University of Louisville Hospital.

LMPD said shortly after arriving at the hospital, the woman died from her injuries. The Jefferson County Coroner's Office later identified the woman as 31-year-old Kaylynn Felix.

The man's injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening and he is expected to survive.

LMPD's Traffic Unit is handling the investigation.
