LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Two people are dead after a crash on the Clark Memorial Bridge involving a driver that left the scene before police could respond.

The crash happened just before 5 p.m. on Saturday evening, Louisville Metro Police Department spokesperson Alicia Smiley said. Two cars driving northbound toward Jeffersonville crashed, with the driver, a man, being found dead at the scene when police arrived. A woman in his car was rushed to the hospital and later died.

The driver of the second car involved left the crash site before police arrived. A woman who was a passenger in his car stayed at the scene and was not hurt, Smiley said.

The bridge is closed in both directions as police clear the area.
