Munfordville Bus Crash

We've all read the tragic news of the bus crash this morning on I-65 in Hart County. Please remember the victims of the crash and their families in your prayers. Such a tragedy is beyond understanding. They were all members of a Mennonite Church in Cumberland County. The truck driver has also died. There are apparently two or three very young children who survived.

For those of us old enough it brings back memories of the Carrollton Bus Crash on I-71 in May 1988. That crash also involved members of a particular church, an Assembly of God congregation from nearby Radcliff in Hardin County, all travelling together to a particular destination. These are painful memories.

May their souls all Rest in Peace. +

Never married, liberal Democrat, born in 1960, opinionated but generally pleasant, member of the Episcopal Church. Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. My vocation and avocation is politics. My favorite pastime is driving the backroads of Kentucky and southern Indiana, visiting small towns, political hangouts, courthouses, churches, and cemeteries. You are welcome to ride with me sometime.
