A Nicholasville woman was killed and a Lexington man injured in an auto accident last Friday at the intersection of U.S. 27 and Brannon Road.
According to Nicholasville Police, the crash occurred when Thelma J. Swiney, 66, of 1240 Short Shun, attempted to turn onto Brannon Road from U.S. 27.
Swiney's northbound car was struck in the side by a pickup truck driven by Christopher Cato, 36, of 3832 Forest Green Drive in Lexington.
Both vehicles ended up on the property of Kings Garden Center, located on the corner of Brannon and U.S. 27.
Neither driver had a passenger.
Nicholasville Police Lt. John Branscum said that the department's reconstruction team has not yet determined why Swiney turned in front of Cato. He added that alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the crash.
