Woman dies in Interstate 74 crash Monday afternoon

A West Virginia woman died in an accident on Interstate 74 yesterday afternoon, after her vehicle crashed into wreckage from a previous collision.

Indiana State Police say that the SUV carrying 63-year-old Kathleen Bunyer of Huntington, West Virginia side-swiped the rear of a semi that had pulled off to the side of the road following a crash moments before. Her vehicle rolled several times and despite life-saving efforts from a Good Samaritan, she was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at about 2:35 p.m. near the Pleasant View exit.

The driver of her vehicle and an infant inside were taken to area hospitals.

The westbound lanes of I-74 were closed until 7:00 p.m. while the crash was investigated.
