LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Authorities say a Kentucky teen has been charged with murder in a fatal wrong-way crash on Interstate 65.

Louisville Metro Police Department spokeswoman Alicia Smiley told news outlets that the 17-year-old boy was charged with murder, assault, driving under the influence and other counts.

His name wasn’t released due to his age. Police said the teen was driving the wrong way in the southbound lanes when the head-on crash happened about 4 a.m. Saturday.

The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office said the driver of the other vehicle died from her injuries at a hospital. Two passengers from her vehicle and the 17-year-old were being treated for injuries.
