A Thursday night crash in Webster County resulted in the death of a 14-year-old Evansville girl after the driver of the vehicle she was in lost control and went off the roadway, causing the vehicle to flip multiple times, according to the Kentucky State Police.

Around 8:00 p.m. on Thursday night, KSP Post 2 Madisonville was requested by the Webster County Sheriff’s Department to investigate a fatal collision on Interstate 69 in Sebree.

KSP says that preliminary investigation revealed 19-year-old Jacob Guest of Evansville, Indiana, was driving a 2011 Honda Civic Northbound on I-69 during heavy rainfall.

Near mile marker 134, KSP says Guest lost control of the vehicle causing it to go off the shoulder of the roadway, overturning multiple times before coming to a final rest on all four tires.

Guest and a juvenile passenger were transported by ambulance to the Methodist Hospital in Henderson, Kentucky where they were treated for their injuries.

Another juvenile passenger, 14-year-old Jasmine Guest of Evansville, succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Webster County Coroner.

The investigation is ongoing by KSP Trooper Jacob Stephens.
