GRAYSON COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville woman was killed in an accident on the Western Kentucky Parkway on Sunday afternoon.

At 3:06 p.m. Sunday the Grayson County Sheriff's Office and Leitchfield police and fire departments responded to a report of a one-vehicle accident at the 106-mile marker of eastbound Western Kentucky Parkway.

According to GCSO Deputy Jarrod Mudd, 21-year-old Stephanie N. Campbell of Louisville nearly veered into the median of the parkway before overcorrecting several times. Eventually she lost control of her Nissan Xterra SUV, which left the road and rolled about 200 feet down an embankment.

Campbell was pronounced dead at the scene by Grayson County Deputy Coroner Howard Tomes.

Campbell was a student at Western Kentucky University.
