A 4-year-old Mauckport girl died Friday from injuries she sustained in a vehicle crash the previous day.
Kylie Noelle Leffler was a passenger in a Ford mini-van her mother, Lauria Barnes Leffler, was driving when the crash occurred at 10:30 Thursday morning on Fern Valley Road in Louisville.
According to a report, the crash occurred when Leffler pulled out of a parking lot making a left turn and was struck by a Ford E150 work van that was traveling on Fern Valley Road.
Leffler was taken to University Hospital in Louisville with non-life-threatening injuries, while her daughter was taken to Kosair Children’s Hospital, also in Louisville, where she died Friday just before noon. The report said Kylie was riding in a booster seat.
