Knox County woman dies in weather-related car accident
Ruby Miles, 62, of Knox County was involved in a five-car accident on Thursday, January 2. She passed away Thursday morning as a result of her injuries.
On Thursday morning, Miles was driving in the northbound land of South KY 11 when her vehicle slid into the guardrail after hitting a patch of black ice. Snowstorms and freezing rain across Kentucky have enabled dangerous amounts of ice to form on the roads.
Miles was not injured from the initial crash. As she exited her car and walked to safety, another car lost control and struck her. Numerous other cars hit the same patch of ice and collided. Three other people sustained injuries and were transported to a local healthcare facility.
The attorneys of the Sampson Law Firm extend our condolences to those who are affected by this unfortunate accident.
