HAZARD — A Perry County woman was killed in a crash early Saturday morning.
Diana Sexton, 49, of Hazard, was travelling north along North Main Street at 7:22 a.m. on May 26 when a Saturn passenger car being driven by a man police identified as David Jones was traveling in the opposite lane.
Jones apparently lost control of the vehicle and crossed the center line, colliding head-on with Sexton’s Pontiac Grand Prix, according to a Kentucky State Police press release.

Jones was also transported to the Hazard ARH and later airlifted to a Lexington trauma center. His condition is currently unknown.
Funeral services for Sexton are scheduled for 1 p.m. on Wednesday, May 30 at Nelson-Frazier Funeral Home in Hindman.
