Co-workers trying to help family of nurse killed in Anderson Co. crash

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A wife, mother and co-worker is being remembered after a crash on New Year's Eve in Anderson County claimed her life.

Police say Teresa Olson was driving north on US-127 in Anderson County with her husband and two children when a car driving the wrong way collided with hers. Olson and the driver of the SUV died.

Teresa Olson worked at Baptist Health Lexington and at UK Hospital.
About a week and a half ago her friends and family received the horrible news she'd been killed in a crash.

Norma Lake worked with Olson for around 17 years.

"She just had that way of appreciating people. She was very down to earth, nothing pretentious about her at all. Just was such a loving, kind person. Very generous, accepting of everyone. I never had anyone complain to me about Teresa, and I never had Teresa complain to me about anyone," said Lake.

Lake has asked her staff to honor Teresa by being a little bit more like her, just by being positive.

A fund to help raise Teresa's boys is in the works.
