Holidays are a time for family gatherings and family vacations. Some people take to the air for getaways and others will pack up the family car and take to the highways. A family from another state was traveling through Kentucky in early January on their way home from a family vacation. The reported negligent driving of another individual brought their trip to a sudden and tragic end.
Truck traffic is a fact of life and automobile drivers must co-exist on Kentucky roadways with truck drivers. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season everyone, including truck drivers, is typically harried and distracted. Distracted driving may have contributed to a tragic crash involving a car and a tractor-trailer on Christmas Eve in Louisa.
