Friends and family remember Letcher County crash victims


Ky. (WYMT) - Two young people died in a car accident in Letcher County during the weekend, and friends and family talked about the memories they have of Nicholas Adam Spencer and Allie Cutting.

Natasha Bentley can not help but smile thinking about memories of her cousin, Allie Cutting.

"She loved her cell phone. She would not go anywhere. If you saw Allie, you saw that cell phone in her hand," said Bentley.

Cutting died Saturday when the truck she was in went off the road off Bull Creek Road in Letcher County. Cutting's death is something Bentley says is the hardest thing she has been through.

"When we were growing up, we would always kid her because she was so happy that we wanted her to be in a bad mood. 'Can't you just be in a bad mood one time?'," Bentley said.

Twenty-two year old Nicholas Spencer also died in the wreck.

Like Allie Cutting, friends of Nicholas Spencer say he always tried to put people in a good mood.

Once a basketball player at Cordia High School, a former teammate, Justin Stacy, says he always had a smile on his face.

"He was always just cutting up in the hallways. We were always having a good time. We were always laughing," said Stacy.

But right now Justin Stacy can only remember his friend, teammate and the man he say was a young father.

"I know when he graduated, the school felt like something was missing. And right now, something is missing right now," Stacy said.

Police say they believe alcohol played a role in the crash. They say Nicholas Adam Spencer and Allie Cutting were not wearing seat belts.

Nicholas Spencer's funeral will be Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Hindman Funeral Services. Allie Cutting's funeral will be Tuesday at 1 p.m. at Nelson Frazier Funeral Home.
