Three lives lost in Carter accidents

Oct. 3, 2012 — Three women, two from Olive Hill and one from Vanceburg, were killed last week in two separate vehicle crashes in Carter County.

According to Kentucky State Police Detective Toby Gardner, KY 2 was shut down for several hours for “accident reconstruction” Thursday after an earlier two-vehicle accident claimed the lives of Pam Carroll, 53, and Sharon D. Moore, 62, both of Olive Hill.

Carroll was killed instantly in the head-on collision just after 7 a.m. Moore was transported to Cabell Huntington Hospital in Huntington where she died shortly after 10 a.m.

On Friday, Mary R. Logan, 53, of Vanceburg, was killed in a collision with a tractor trailer on I-64 at mile marker 159 near Olive Hill. She was traveling east at about 2:30 p.m. when she seemingly lost control of her car.

The road was wet and visibility was limited because of heavy rain, said KSP Trooper Jim Ryland.

Ryland said Logan’s car struck a guardrail and then traveled back onto the interstate and into the path of Terry Anders, 55, of Grassy Creek, N.C., who also was traveling east when his tractor-trailer rig struck Logan’s car and then traveled through a guardrail and over an embankment.

Logan was pronounced dead at the scene by Carter County Coroner George Sparks. She was not wearing a seat belt.

Anders and his passenger, Melynda Anders, 49, were wearing seat belts. Neither was injured.

Multiple agencies responded to the crash, including the Carter County Sheriff’s Department, Olive Hill Police Department, Olive Hill Fire Department, Carter County EMS, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Kentucky EPA, Grahn Fire Department, Carter County Emergency Management and the Carter County Coroner’s Office.

Both crashes are under investigation.

A memorial service was held for Moore on Monday, Oct. 1, at Globe Funeral Chapel in Olive Hill.

Funeral services for Carroll were held Sunday, Sept. 30, also at Globe Funeral Chapel.

Services for Logan were held Tuesday, Oct. 2, also at the Globe Funeral Chapel in Olive Hill.
