Improvements Coming To Crash Site

The state plans to make improvements to a stretch of road in Scott County where a high school student died earlier this year.

Franklin County High School senior Jenn Penn lost control in a curve on U.S. 460 and slammed into a guardrail.

The Transportation Cabinet says it will install fluorescent flashing yellow lights in the curve and is looking into putting down high-friction material on the road, which would keep people from sliding.

The State Journal reports a date to install the improvements has not yet been set.

    I have driven that road 5 days a week twice a day for 17 years and thought the same thing, something needs to be changed. It is a SHAME that it takes the loss of my daughter to wake the state up!
