A 67-year-old Kentucky woman died after a head on crash involving a logging truck. It happened Thursday on Highway 27 in McCreary County.

Police say Margie Privett crossed the center line, then crashed into the log truck. The truck rolled completely upside down.

First responders had to cut the top off the car to pull Privett out. She died shortly after.

Crews kept the road closed for hours.

"The portion of Highway 27 was shut down most of the day as crews cleaned up the lumber and investigated the cause," said Shirl Darnell.

The driver of the log truck was taken from a local hospital to UK Hospital to be checked out, but is ok.

Police say speed played a role in the crash.
