A Semi Truck driver from Dunnville was involved in a fatal accident over the weekend.

 

It happened Sunday evening between Hodgenville and Campbellsville, on KY 210 near Morning Star Road.

 

Investigators with the Larue County Sheriff’s Office say 18 year old D’Jharria Davis, of Lexington, died at the scene. She was a passenger in a vehicle driven by 19 year old Charles Ishmael, of Georgia. The two were traveling down-hill in a curve, headed toward Campbellsville, when they crossed into the left lane and collided with the on-coming Semi, operated by Darin Powell, 41 of Dunnville.

 

Witnesses said Powell attempted evasive maneuvers, but was unable to avoid the collision.

 

Ishmael was air lifted to UofL Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

 

Powell refused transport at the scene and left in a private vehicle.

 

Highway 210 was closed for several hours.

 

The accident remains under investigation by the Larue County Sheriff’s Department.
