Joe Herndon, age 19, was killed Saturday in a fiery single car auto accident. Reports indicate that Mr. Herndon’s car was traveling west on Ky. 2168 when it left the road and hit an embankment and then a tree. When police arrived, the car was engulfed in flames. Our sympathies go out to the Herndon family in their time of lose. It is still undetermined if something caused this tragic wreck or if some factors played a role in the wreck occurring. When collateral factors play a role in a accident or death, there can be legal recourse for the victim or the victims family.
