A Danville woman was killed late Saturday night when the car she was riding in went off US 150 near the Boyle-Lincoln county line.
According to state police, a 1995 Pontiac driven by Rodney Alcorn, 42, of Stanford crashed after 11 p.m. A passenger in the vehicle, Teresa Hoskins, 35, of Danville, was ejected from the vehicle. Lincoln Coroner Farris Marcum said Hoskins was pronounced dead at the scene from multiple blunt force traumas.
Marcum said it appeared the vehicle was westbound toward Danville when Alcorn overcorrected. The vehicle struck a rock wall before flipping several times and landing on its side. Marcum said, neither Alcorn nor Hoskins was wearing a seatbelt, and both were ejected.
Marcum said Hoskins’ 4-year-old daughter, Chelsea Johnson, was a passenger in the car, and another motorist who drove by shortly after the crash saw the child walking in the roadway.
The girl told authorities that she had unbuckled herself and crawled out of the vehicle after the crash, Marcum said.
