LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Jefferson County Coroner's Office has identified the woman killed in an early morning car crash on Sunday, but was asking for the public's help locating her next of kin.

Diana Farris, 28, of Norene Lane died at University of Louisville's emergency department of multiple blunt force injuries, according to Deputy Coroner Eddie Robinson.

The single-vehicle accident  happened around 4 a.m. Sunday on Hurstbourne Lane near Fegenbush Lane.  Senior Pastor of Holy Anointing Ministries, Antonio Cruz, said he saw lights and his wife, Rachael heard sirens Sunday morning.

"I know there was a lot of sirens. A lot of police and everything. But, I thought, well, it's another accident like always," Antonio Cruz said. "To hear that she passed away is kind of sad."

Louisville Metro Police said Farris was not wearing a seatbelt and that speed may have played a role in the crash.

Now, thoughts turned to Farris' family. 

"We're praying for them," Rachael Cruz said. "We're at their disposition."

Anyone with information about Farris's next of kin should call the Jefferson County Coroner's Office at 502-574-0140.
