BOONE CO., Ky. (FOX19) - One person was killed Monday when a car and semi crashed on northbound I-75, according to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

Monday afternoon the sheriff’s office identified the victim as 21-year-old Allyson Davis of Banner, Ky.

Around 9:30 a.m. deputies were called to mile marker 175 on the interstate where dispatch said a person was trapped inside of a car.

Davis was driving northbound in a Toyota Corolla when the sheriff’s office said she lost control because of water sitting in the high-speed lane.

That water caused the car to spin out and go across the NB lanes of I-75, according to the news release from the sheriff’s office.

The car went under the semi’s trailer and became lodged underneath after spinning out, the release stated.

Davis died at the scene of the crash, the sheriff’s office said in the release.

The sheriff's office said the two right hand lanes of I-75 northbound are closed.
