Pregnant teen killed, another injured after tree falls

Somerset police are conducting a death investigation this afternoon after a tree fell on two people on Jasper Street.

17 year old Kaitlyn Griffin and her unborn baby were killed.

Griffin had to be extricated from the downed tree and treated by fire and EMS workers.

15 year old Josh Thacker of Somerset was also struck, but managed to get partially out of the tree's way.

Griffin and Thacker were transported to the Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital.

That's where Griffin was pronounced dead.
