By Larry Smith, The Big Dawg, 99.9 FM & The WAVE, 92.7 FM

A Green County woman died behind the wheel of her vehicle at 10:30amET, Tuesday, June 10, 2014, in Campbellsville, KY. Beatrice Estes, 73, apparently suffered a heart attack, as her vehicle was approaching the intersection of US 68/KY 55 & KY 210. Estes was transported to the Taylor County Regional Hospital where she was pronounced deceased by Taylor County Coroner Terry Dabney.

Dabney told us that Ms. Estes suffered the heart attack before the collision and never applied the brakes as her vehicle rolled into another in the intersection. No injuries have been reported from the other vehicle. Campbellsville City Police worked the accident. - Larry Smith, Operations Manager, Shoreline Communications
