One Dead as Crash Closes Taylor Mill Road

One person died and the 10000 block of Taylor Mill Road in Independence was closed by a serious traffic crash Wednesday night.

Peter Dance, 36, was driving southbound on Kentucky 16 when he lost control of his 2009 Hyundai Sonata and crossed in the northbound lane. That's when he hit a 2015 Scion driven by David Penn, 34.

The head on collision killed Dance, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Penn was taken by medical helicopter to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Police told The River City News that it appears that neither driver was wearing a seat belt.

Independence Police and other emergency responders had the road closed for several hours.
