LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A Madison County woman died Tuesday evening when she pulled out of Maple Grove Road in front of another vehicle on Ky. 363. Upon impact, the vehicles landed in front of the former Piney Grove Market.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said Tommie Johnson, 60, of Berea, was  extracted from her vehicle and received fatal injuries due to the collision. She was transported to Saint Joseph-London where she was pronounced dead by Laurel County Coroner Doug Bowling.

The driver of the other car, Charles Joseph, 19, received minor injuries and was transported via personal vehicle to Saint Joseph-London.

The accident occurred at 7 p.m. at the intersection of Maple Grove Road and Ky. 363.

Chief Deputy Eddy Sizemore said Johnson was attempting to turn left onto Ky. 363 in a black Chevrolet Cavalier when she was struck by Joseph, who was driving south in a black Dodge Durango. Johnson’s vehicle was pushed sideways into a ditchline.

 Sizemore was assisted at the scene by Deputy Greg Turner, Laurel County Sheriff’s Office accident re-constructionist Richard Dalrymple and London Police Officer/re-constructionist Chris Edwards, the London-Laurel County Rescue Squad, Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County, and the Laurel County Volunteer Fire Department.
