BALLARD COUNTY - A two-vehicle collision in Ballard County on Friday morning claimed the life of a Monticello woman and injured two other people.

According to Kentucky State Police (KSP), troopers were asked by the Ballard County Sheriff's Office to investigate a two-vehicle collision involving a possible fatality on KY 286 near the one-mile marker.

KSP says their investigation showed that 58-year-old Clayton L. Clark of La Center was traveling east on KY 286. As Clark was going around a curve, he crossed the centerline and collided with an SUV driven by 63-year-old Neoma J. Jones of Monticello, which was traveling in the opposite direction. A passenger in Jones' vehicle, 51-year-old Lisa C. Daniels of Monticello, was asleep in the cargo area of the SUV at the time of the collision.

All three individuals were transported to Jackson Purchase Medical Center in Mayfield. Clark and Jones were airlifted from Jackson Purchase to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville. Daniels was pronounced dead at the hospital.

KY 286 was shut down for approximately four hours while troopers reconstructed the accident.
