Police indicated that the singer, 20, was travelling in her 2008 Mazda on the inner loop of New Circle Road when she attempted to exit onto Nicholasville Road. However, it appeared that the car was traveling too fast and Audrey overcorrected her car. The vehicle flipped and rolled over on its roof.
Sadly, Audrey was ejected from the car, as she was not wearing her seat belt. The Lexington police indicated that the car rolled over her while it was flipping. Rescuers found Audrey in a grassy area near the vehicle. She was transported to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, where she died from her injuries.
Her parents said she was traveling home from a friend’s house when the accident occurred.
Police indicated that speed and the lack of a seat belt contributed to this fatal accident.
Audrey Elizabeth had just recorded an album in Nashville called Just Sayin’ and has been touring through the Lexington area performing at restaurants and wineries. On Monday of that week, she wrote and performed a new song A Different Kind of Crazy with her friend, and they posted a video of it on YouTube.
Our Lexington accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Schachter, Hendy, & Johnson would like to send our deepest condolences to the family of Audrey Hounshell and wish them strength to get through this difficult time.
