A five-vehicle Knox County accident took the life of a local woman on Thursday morning January 2, 2014. The crash reportedly occurred on South KY 11 during a busy time for local police when approximately two dozen Knox County crashes were reported within a short amount of time due to icy roads.
This five-car Knox County collision reportedly began when Ruby Miles slid into a guardrail while traveling northbound on South KY 11. Her car allegedly ended up back on the road and Ms. Miles was not reported to be injured in that part of the collision. Instead, she allegedly called her husband from her cell phone, got out of her car, and began walking up a hill to meet her husband. Another vehicle reportedly slid and struck Ms. Miles before crashing into other vehicles. Ms. Miles was killed in this accident and others were reportedly hurt and taken to the hospital for treatment of their accident injuries.
The Knox County Sherriff’s Office responded to this crash and is investigating the causes of this fatal 2014 Knox County accident.
Ms. Miles is survived by her husband, her two sons and their wives, her grandchildren, her siblings, and other relatives and friends. Funeral services were held earlier this month. She was an employee of the Knox County Schools and a member of the Scalf Chapel Holiness Church. Our Kentucky wrongful death lawyers extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ruby Miles following this tragic accident.
