UPDATE: Indiana State Police say the two-vehicle accident claimed the life of a Louisville woman.

ISP says preliminary investigation revealed the driver of a 2006 Freightliner box truck was traveling eastbound in the right lane on I-64 and approaching a construction zone where the left lane was closed.

We're told the construction zone had posted signs and orange barrels indicating the left lane was closed ahead.

ISP says 52-year-old Leah McMillen of Louisville was driving her Nissan Rogue eastbound in the left lane and was approaching the orange barrels and the closed lane.

Officials say McMillen attempted to pass the side of the truck causing her to lose control. McMillen's vehicle left the roadway on the southside, struck a tree, overturned, and came to a final rest in a ditch that had a foot of standing water.

Indiana State Police say McMillen was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the truck was not injured.
