WALTON., KY. (FOX19)- A mother was killed in a three-vehicle crash in northern Kentucky Wednesday morning, according to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.
Crews responded to Richwood Road and Hicks Pike just before 7:30 a.m., according to Boone County dispatchers.
Officials said the crash claimed the life 45-year-old Amy Skiba and sent her two children and another driver to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Skiba was a counselor in the Boone County school district.
Darrin Carroll, 42, was operating a 2003 Chevrolet flatbed truck eastbound on Richwood Road when the right axles went off the side of the road, police said. As Carrol got back on the roadway, the truck started a yaw rotation and collided with a westbound 2018 Honda Accord in a head-on, side-swipe manner which killed Skiba from Union, KY., and injured her two 12-year-old children.
Police said the flatbed continued its rotation, ending up on the north side of the roadway causing the bed to disengage from the frame and collide with a 2017 Toyota pickup truck operated by 53-year-old Angela Sulcer.
Carroll and Skiba’s children were transported to St. Elizabeth Hospital.
Sulcer was not injured.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office is investigating and asks anyone who might have witnessed the crash to call 859-334-2175.
