The Boyle County Emergency Manager says at least one person has died in a multi-vehicle collision Thursday afternoon.

The crash happened around 1 p.m. on US 150, near the Parksville Cross Pike intersection, between Danville and Perryville.

State police say a car crossed the center line and hit a box truck head-on.

The driver of the car died, while the driver of the box truck was taken to the hospital in unknown condition.

Nearby neighbor, Betty Followell, says she heard the crash when it happened.

"We've lived here 53 years, and there's been a lot of wrecks here at Cross Pike," says Followell. "This is the first death we've seen."

Followell says the drivers on Perryville Road can be reckless at times.

The name of the person killed in the wreck has not been released.
