One dead in two-vehicle collision in Estill County

ESTILL COUNTY — A two-vehicle collision on KY 52 in Estill County left one person dead Thursday afternoon near the Madison County line, according to Kentucky State Police.

Witnesses told KSP that Stephenie Schnittker, 72, was driving eastbound when she lost control of her passenger car and crossed into the path of oncoming traffic.

Schnittker’s car struck a van operated by Steven Darbyshire of Irvine that was carrying seven passengers, all of whom were treated for minor injuries.

Schnittker was pronounced dead on the scene by an Estill County deputy coroner, according to a KSP news release.  

An autopsy was scheduled for Friday. The collision is under investigation by Trooper Kenneth Bradley.
