GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WKYT) - The Scott County Sheriff's Office has identified both people involved in the deadly crash in Georgetown.

It happened just after 5 p.m. in the 6500-block of Paris Pike, shutting down both lanes for several hours.

According to a press release, 37-year-old Margaret Morgan of Benton, Ky. was driving eastbound in a 2019 Chevy Malibu when she lost control of the vehicle, crossed into the oncoming lane, and hit a 2020 International box truck head-on.

The driver of the box truck, 74-year-old Harold Morgan, Jr., was not hurt. But, Margaret Morgan was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation by the Georgetown/Scott County Collision Investigation Unit. But, right now, officials do not believe drugs or alcohol are a factor.
