This accident happened just after 8:00 p.m. last night.

(Burlington, Ky.) - A Walton woman was killed after an accident in Northern Kentucky last night. 

Around 8:10 p.m. on Sunday, April 5, deputies from the Boone County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to the Burlington Pike and Aero Parkway intersection for a reported accident with injury and extrication. 

Upon arrival, a preliminary investigation showed that a black Saturn Vue was traveling south on Aero Parkway and approaching the intersection to Burlington Pike when the SUV drove off of the right side of the road and struck two utility poles.

The collision with the second utility pole caused the SUV to split in half. 

One half of the vehicle continued onto Burlington Pike to strike a passenger car stopped at the light to make a left turn on Aero Parkway. 

The operator of the SUV was ejected and pronounced deceased on scene.

The victim has been identified as Tara L. Girtley, 37, of Walton, Kentucky. 

Occupants in the passenger car were not injured.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation by the Boone County Sheriff’s Office’s Accident Reconstruction Team.
