Muhlenberg County Fatal Accident

According to the Kentucky State Police, Christine Steele of Franklin was traveling South on Kentucky 431 when her van ran off the right side of the road and she over-corrected. She then struck a Chevy Blazer head-on driven by Vicki Pruden of Beechmont. A Chevy pickup driven by Anthony Pierpoint, also of Beechmont, then went between Steele’s and Pruden’s cars.


Pierpoint’s truck made contact with Steele’s van. Pruden’s blazer left the road before coming to a final rest and Steele’s van rolled over on its passenger side.

The Muhlenberg County Coroner pronounced 38-year-old Vicki Pruden dead at the scene. Thirty-five-year-old Christine Steele was taken to the hospital where she later died, and two juvenile passengers in Steele’s van were also taken to the hospital. Their conditions have not been released.
