Vina woman dies as car crashes into parking lot
Russellville – A vehicle collision on U.S. Hwy. 43 Saturday resulted in one vehicle leaving the road, entering a restaurant parking lot, striking a Vina woman and killing her.
Russellville Police said Kathy Beasley Emerson, 65, was hit as she was getting out of her vehicle in the parking lot of 43 Grill. The crash occurred when a vehicle traveling north on U.S. 43 was hit by another in the median intersection at Gandy Street. The collision forced the northbound driver off the road and into the restaurant’s parking lot, where it struck multiple vehicles, including Emerson’s.
Emerson was taken across the highway to Russellville Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
