Fatal Accident In Knott County

One woman is dead after police say she lost control of her vehicle on Highway 7 in Knott County.

Witnesses at the scene say they saw her car come around a corner when it spun out of control and hit a parked Toyota truck. Mabeline Caudill owns the Toyota truck and says she just got out of it before it was hit.

"I just had got out. I had come from Tennessee and walked across the road on the bank when this accident happened," Caudill said.

The coroner says 52 year old Deborah L. Slone of Kite died in the accident.

The accident temporarily shut down Highway 7 so police could reconstruct it.
