A 27-year-old pregnant woman from Franklin, Kentucky was killed in a crash in Allen County, Kentucky.

Reports from the Kentucky State Police said the two-vehicle crash happened in the 12000 block of Franklin Road around 10:45 a.m. Sunday.

A vehicle, driven by 27-year-old Leslie A. Adams, was headed west when she got to a hillcrest and saw another vehicle, that was not involved in the crash, stationary in the westbound lane waiting to turn.

Troopers said Adams tried to avoid a collision. She swerved into the eastbound lanes, hitting another vehicle, driven by 42-year-old Barrett A. Wright, head-on.

Adams was taken by helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she passed away. Authorities confirmed her unborn baby also died.

Wright, of Bowling Green, and his passenger, 42-year-old Larissa Harris, of Franklin, were both treated and released from a local hospital.

The investigation remained ongoing.
