Truck Slams Into Motorcycles Along I-64; Two Killed

Interstate 64 in Montgomery County was down to one lane for several hours on Friday afternoon after a deadly crash involving several motorcycles and a car.

It happened just before 1:00pm along westbound I-64, just east of the Mt. Sterling exit in Montgomery County.

Three motorcycles, carrying two passengers apiece were pulled over in the emergency lane. We're told they had stopped to put on rain gear.

Police say a pickup truck came over into the emergency lane to avoid another car and plowed into those bikes.

Two people died. The coroner tells us it was a couple from Oklahoma. Six people total were taken to the hospital in Mt. Sterling. Police say the driver and passenger in the pickup truck were treated and released.

We don't know about the conditions of the other motorcyclists.

    Almost 3 years now. I knew Ray and Marilou as a teenager. They were super great to me. A great positive influence. I was lucky to have had them in my life. I have reflected often on Ray's words to me back in the 1980's. Thank you R and M. Sincerely. You are missed on this earth but have enriched the next level.

    Ray & Marilou were the best in-laws you could ever ask for! They were giving and caring people! My older two children weren't even their grandchildren by blood but no one ever knew it! They were there grandchildren as much as their other grandchildren were. We all loved them very much and even though it has been 2 years, the hurt has still not stopped!! Please keep all of us in your prayer because the helaing is still going on!!

    Ray and Marilou were my grandparents. They were the best people I knew. Even though its been a year, I feel like their still here. Watching over us and protecting us. I will never ever forget this in my life. My two little brothers are so young that I hope I can tell them my memories I had with them. I love you grandma and grandpa!!!!

    Ray and Marilou were part of my family, they were awesome people. My husband's family has suffered so much loss in the past 7 years, it is hard to believe we are faced with such another tragic tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are also with the young man who hit them. His live will be changed forever. I like others have said, do hope there is no alcohol or drugs involved. Ray and Marilou were beginning the best years of their life, spending time together, watching their children raise their children, and enjoying grandchildren and traveling. Please keep us in your thoughts are prayers, there is a lot of healing to do.

    Raymond and MaryLou Mueggenborg of Okarche, OK were the couple killed in the I-64 motorcycle accident in Kentucky on Friday. Coincidentally, Raymond's brother David and his wife Jean were killed in May 2002 when the I40 bridge collapsed near Webbers Falls in Eastern Oklahoma. The Mueggenborg's are from a small, Catholic, farming community in NW/Central Oklahoma where,until lately, Eischen's chicken served at the oldest bar in Oklahoma territory was the most notable story. Raymond and MaryLou leave behind 4 grown children and several young grandchildren.

    My prayers are with all the people involved. I hope and pray that drugs and alcohol was not a factor. Everyone needs to take extra percautions while driving at all times. May God be with all the families at this time of need.
