HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - Kentucky State Police responded to a fatal wreck on the Audubon Parkway on Sunday.

Officials now say five vehicles were involved in the crash that happened near the 11 mile-marker just before 4 p.m.

Troopers say they believe 38-year-old Norman A. Hudson of Rockport, Indiana, was heading east in the westbound lanes.

They say he sideswiped a car driven by 31-year-old Kristen M. Keown, then hit another car head-on. Troopers say that car was driven by 29-year-old Kelsie Wheeler.

They say he then hit a truck driven by 56-year-old James Nelson and another truck driven by 56-year-old Roy E. Martin.

Troopers say Hudson then became airborne and overturned in the median.

They say he was not wearing seatbelt and was ejected from the car.

Troopers say Hudson was killed.

They say Keown, a passenger, and Wheeler were taken to the hospital by ambulance. Nelson was flown to the hospital with serious injuries.

The Audubon Parkway was closed for nearly five hours.
