SCOTT COUNTY, KY – Authorities said that a second person has died following a car crash on Interstate 75 south in Scott County last week.
This is an update to a previous story.
In a Facebook post, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office said 21-year-old Emma Keyser passed away from her injuries Tuesday afternoon at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
She was a passenger in a car driven by her mother Debra Keyser, a school teacher from Lexington who also died in the accident. The sheriff’s office said Debra Keyser was driving on Interstate 75 south Wednesday night at about 7 p.m. when her car went off the west side of the roadway and crashed into a tree. Debra Keyser was pronounced dead at the scene.
A second car was also reportedly involved, and WKYT reports that Donald Duhamell was charged with DUI following the wreck.
