While the nation’s most talked about current disaster is taking place on the east coast as Sandy hits, the Commonwealth of Kentucky had its own tragic experience today.
We here at KSR often stick to jokes and tom-foolery, but sometimes a somber moment has to be shared. Today, a Head Start bus crashed in Carroll County killing two kindergarten students and injuring several others. The event took place merely 10 miles from the tragic Carrollton bus crash of 1988. While the reasons for today’s crash are not entirely clear yet, it is without a doubt a terrible and horrific event that deserves all of our condolences. I cannot even begin to imagine how horrible this event feels for the families and friends in the community.
We’d like to take this moment and let all the people involved with the children know that all our thoughts at KSR are with all the folks in Carroll County. As well, we also want to wish everyone well on the east coast braving Hurricane Sandy. Both these events are going to take communities coming together to help each other. A lot of terrible things are happening today, but hopefully they can be overcome soon.
Stay safe, everyone.
