(GREENVILLE) - A fatal accident near the Harrison County line outside of Greenville on U.S. 150 killed one woman and injured another.

Jerod Clapp of the News And Tribune reports, Floyd County Sheriff's Department Deputy Jason Jones said a white Ford Expedition lost control at the top of a hill while traveling westbound on the highway. A black Toyota Corolla in the opposite lane struck the Expedition in the rear passenger side as it crossed over.

Greenville firefighters extricated the passenger of the Corolla, a woman in her 80s from Paoli, who was transported to University of Louisville Hospital. Jones said emergency medical technicians reported she had a broken hip and some other injuries, but nothing deemed life-threatening.

He said after she was taken to U of L Hospital, she wasn't immediately taken into surgery. The Jefferson County coroner called him later, reporting that after complications set in, she was taken into the operating room and died during surgery.

The driver of the Expedition was transported to Floyd Memorial Hospital and Health Services.
