Family asks for answers after deadly interstate crash

VERSAILLES, Ky. (WKYT) - Family members of a central Kentucky woman killed in a crash last month are pleading for anyone who knows what happened to come forward.

It happened Feb. 22 on I-64 in Shelby County.

Jessica Carter, 26, of Anderson County, died in a crash after swerving to avoid some sort of debris released from a tan SUV that had just passed her for the second time, state police said.

Family members said investigators told them road rage may be to blame.

But police are still looking for information about or from whomever was in that tan SUV. State police said they are reviewing surveillance video from a nearby business, and are waiting on lab results to come back from evidence collected on the scene.

As weeks pass without answers, though, family members want someone to come forward.

"I'm hoping to get the answers," said Laverne Carter, Jessica's mother. "If not, it's not going to bring my daughter back. And I just have to be at peace with it because I know the ultimate person that will know the answers, and He'll take care of everything. The Lord will take care of it all."

Jessica Carter left behind a four-year-old daughter, Trinity.

Family members have set up a scholarship fund for Trinity. Memorial contributions can be made to the Trinity Laverne Carter Scholarship Fund, c/o Laverne Carter, at Citizens Commerce Bank in Versailles.
