    I was headed back to London after visiting some freinds in Hazard and came up on this accident, and from the looks of it I knew it was not good. Im so sorry for the families loss and pray for the others recovery.

    My husband and I were the first to arrive at this accident. It did not happen at a "new access road", it happened there where the toll booths used to be. If anyone has information about Tammy Smith and/or her younger brother (Eversole or Ebersole for last name), please contact me at, I would like to come in and visit with her for a bit. I've had these folks' faces in my head ever since it happened last night and I cannot stop thinking about them.
