Two more people died after yet another fatal car crash on a dangerous stretch of Waymans Branch Road near Scott High School in Covington.
According to police and residents, many people use this road as a shortcut between the school and Madison Pike. Naomi Miller evidently lost control of her vehicle on the slick road; her car then skidded into a nearby creek. Both she and her grandson, 16-year-old Jordan Miller, died at the scene. A third person — a high school student whose name was not released — was injured in the fatal car crash. Covington Assistant Police Chief Brian Steffen said the area is knon for “frequent collisions [and] frequent crashes, especially when it starts raining.” Local resident Lisa Frieman added that “the city or county could do something to make the road safer,” such as lowering the speed limit, adding warning signs, or erecting guardrails.
