“WILLIAMSON – Kentucky State Police are investigating a single-car collision that killed a woman walking along U.S. 119 near Belfry on Wednesday.”
Last night in my virtual back yard, a well known lady met her ends while jogging down the side of 119. A mother driving her to kids struck and killer d her. Rumor mill says the driver turned back to hand a bottle to the baby and veered off the road killing the jogger, who is , or was a PE teacher at the local high school. I have no idea that is what happened, but usually the local scuttlebutt is true more often than not in a rare exception to the rule.
The local rag couldn’t help but post the most grisly pictures it could come up with.
One car crashed in the southbound lanes, just after the intersection for Belfry High School, at approximately 10 a.m., according to a news release issued by Kentucky State Police
spokesman Trooper William Petry. The car drove off the highway and struck a woman walking along the median, Petry said.
Petry identified the woman as Robin Gail Porter, of Williamson. She was pronounced dead at the scene by the Pike County Coroner’s Office. The driver’s name has not been released.
The drive has as of yet not been charged indicating the po-po think it may indeed have been a freak accident. Luckily quick acting citizens stopped to render aid and remove the children from the up ended car.
Events like this is why I personally keep a expanded first aid kit in my vehicle. Not only in case I wreck my own fool self some where it is going to take a while for help to arrive, but also in case of coming upon wounded from an accident who need help ASAP.
One life taken and another life probably shattered forever for being the operator of the car. The mental impact on the kid later in life can not be predicted and the family and friends of all involved will no doubt suffer. It can all be taken in a split second if you let your attention lapse. Not a gun insight to blame unless the driver of the car had a CCW. It is possible the gun whispered into her ear and convinced her to kill the pedestrian. These things can’t be ruled out. It does make a compelling argument for me about my correct decision to stay inside and no eschew PE. You can’t get hit by a car in your recliner.
