COLD SPRING, Ky. - The police chief says he doesn't believe drugs were involved in the head-on crash that killed a young mother and daughter Thursday night, but the investigation goes on.
Desirae Hensley, 30, and 8-year-old Jakyra Cundiff, both of Alexandria, died when a car crossed the center line and hit them in the 5400 block of Alexandria Pike, near the Low Gap intersection, according to police.
"There was no evidence at the scene I saw of drugs," Cold Spring Police Chief Brian Messer said Friday. "I looked inside the cars and didn’t see anything, and talking to friends of one of the drivers, they said they had no known history of using drugs."
The other driver, Tammy Feinauer, 37, of Crestview, was hospitalized at University of Cincinnati Medical Center. She is expected to recover.
