COLD SPRINGS, KY (FOX19) - Cold Springs Police Chief Brian Messer says there is no evidence at this time to indicate drugs played a role in a crash that killed a mother and daughter.

Desirae Hensley, 30, and Jakyra Cundiff, 8, were pronounced dead at the scene on Alexandria Pike near East Low Gap Road.

A female driver crossed the center line into the northbound lanes and stuck Hensley's vehicle around 7 p.m.

"There was no evidence at the scene, that I saw last night, of drugs," said Messer. "I looked inside the car and did not see anything."

The striking driver submitted a drug test, Messer said. The results have not come in.

Investigators say it is too early to determine if she will be charged.

"It's horrifying," said Messer. "It's probably the worst thing you can see in law enforcement."

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
