Initial release on fatal accident was in error

Drugs, alcohol not believed to have been factor in crash

ASHLAND — Kentucky State Police at Ashland on Friday initially reported that a three-vehicle accident on U.S. 60 in Boyd County that killed a 17-year-old East Carter High School student and injured five others the previous evening may have been drug- or alcohol-related. A report based on that information appeared on dailyindependent.com.

However, 3 1/2 hours after issuing the first release, the KSP retracted it and issued a new one stating it did not not appear drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.

The story was changed on the website to reflect the information in the second release.
