yeah for real Miranda didnt kill her cousin a tragic and heartfully sad accident did I knew both girls personally and there is no way Courtney would blame Miranda for this if she were around some how. I spoke with Miranda yesterday and she couldnt stop crying and saying how beautfiul and nice Courtney was and that she couldnt believe she was gone , little less judgement and lil more compassion and love is what is needed in this time people...To all families involved Id like you to know my prayers HAVE been with you

London woman killed in wreck on KY 192
By Carol Mills
Staff Writer

One person was killed and five others were injured in a three-car accident Thursday afternoon on a curve in front of the London Country Club on KY 192.

Courtney Marie Carter, 19, of London, and a 5-year-old boy were passengers in a black Mitsubishi driven by Miranda Knowles of London. Carter and the boy were flown from the scene to the University of Kentucky Medical Center. Carter died at the hospital later that day and the boy was released about midnight. Four people, including Knowles, 23, and the driver of a dark blue Honda Accord, Bobby Johnson, were taken to Saint Joseph-London by Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County.

Two people in a blue Ford Windstar van, Don Burgin, 62, and Marietta Bryant, 87, suffered only minor injuries.

“They were very lucky,” Russell Burgin said.“That’s my father and mother-in-law. I got here as quickly as I could.”

Laurel County Sheriff’s Detective Richard Dalrymple was called in to reconstruct the accident.

“A black Mitsubishi was headed toward town on KY 192 just east of the Parker Road junction, and for whatever reason, she crossed the center line and sideswiped a minivan,” Dalrymple said.“Once she sideswiped the van, she got into a sideways slide into the westbound lane into oncoming traffic, and then was T-boned by a Honda Accord. The impact was more in the passenger side than anywhere. The Mitsubishi ended up on its side in a ditch.”

“Drugs or alcohol are suspected,” Dalrymple added.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Greg Poynter said Johnson is in his 50s. Poynter, who assisted at the scene, said the boy appeared to be Knowles’ son because he was sitting in her lap when he arrived at the scene. Poynter said Carter was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.

“Charges may be forthcoming,” Poynter said of Knowles.

Poynter said Carter was from Florida, but had been living with Knowles since moving to London.

London Country Club became a landing zone for evacuation helicopters. The first helicopter landed in the parking lot, but two others were told to land on the course itself.

Assisting at the scene were the Laurel County Fire Department, London-Laurel County Rescue Squad, Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County, London Police and the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff’s Deputy Ernest Rudder and Poynter worked the wreck until Dalrymple arrived on the scene.

Why don't we wait until after the investigation before we assume we know what happened. Just because they SUSPECT drugs or alcohol doesn't mean she was under the influence of either. And if she was it will come out and she will have to face the music. It's very sad that a life was lsot and other people were injured. Let's not contribute to the tragedy.

what is wrong with you? you should definatly do some soul searching and let Miranda deal with her own since you seem to know so much about her habits you obviously never tried to prevent it, you probably joined her in her activities

If she was on drugs she should be held accountable. But if the other woman knew she was on a substance before she got into the car, should have not put her child in danger, she also is at fault, The child would be the only one innocent .
