State police say an 89-year-old Albany woman was killed on Friday following a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of US 127 and KY 90 in neighboring Clinton County.

According to police, at around 11:45 a.m. Friday Lena Dickerson, 89, of Albany, was stopped at the intersection of US 127 and KY 90 in a 2005 Buick Lacrosse when she pulled into the path of a 1999 Mack log truck traveling west on KY 90 . The Mack truck was being driven by Herbert Stevens, 65, of Whitley City. Stevens attempted to avoid the collision but was unable to do so and collided with Dickerson’s vehicle.

Dickerson was transported to the Clinton County Hospital where she was later pronounced dead by the Clinton County Coroner. Stevens was not injured during the collision.

State police were assisted at the scene by the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office, Clinton County Fire and EMS, the Clinton County Rescue Squad, and the Clinton County Coroner. The collision remains under investigation by Senior Trooper Weston Sullivan.
