Funeral arrangements set for couple killed in crash

Funeral arrangements have now been set for a central Kentucky couple killed in a crash.

A visitation will be held for John and Lavada Rowland Tuesday night at 6 at Crestview Holy Sanctuary in Berea.

The funeral will follow Wednesday afternoon at 2. It will be held at the same church.

Lakes Funeral Home in Berea is in charge of arrangements.

Police say a pickup, driven by 27-year-old Brett Whitaker, crashed head-on into the car the Rowlands were in Friday night on U.S. 27 in Lincoln County.

At last check, Whitaker was in fair condition at UK Hospital.

At the time of the crash, the Rowlands were heading home to Berea, after spending the evening at the church they were starting in Lincoln County.

Police are still investigating the crash. They say they're waiting on toxicology reports to determine if alcohol played a role.
