A woman was Princeton died Sunday morning in a two vehicle crash on KY 139 North.

KSP says Travis Hale, 25, Princeton, was driving northbound on KY 139 North, just south of Carner Hill Road.  Jeraldine Reece, 72, Princeton, was driving southbound on KY 139 North, approaching Mr. Hale's vehicle.  For an unknown reason, Hale's vehicle crossed the center line into the southbound lane.
