“Upon arrival officers located the dark passenger car operated by a 38-year-old female who was deceased,” the Lexington Police Department explained in a press release.
“The dark passenger car had struck a white passenger car head-on. A deceased child was located in the front passenger seat of the white car.”
“An additional three children and the 30-year-old driver of the white passenger car were transported to a local hospital where they succumbed to their injuries.”
Although the victims of the fatal accident were not identified, an obituary for Catherine and her 4 children says that “they passed away on Saturday, June 5, 2021, from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.”

“My daughter (adopted) was traveling north on I-75 and at mile marker 102 she did not know what was headed in her path,” one GoFundMe page created for Catherine and the children reads.
“Another car had got on the interstate headed south on the northbound lanes. It struck her head-on. She and her 4 children all died due to injuries sustained by the other car.”
“The children were 11, 9, 5, 2 years old. Karmen, Santana, Brayden, and Jack. Her husband Jon is needing help. Catherine met Jon in 2017, and it was love at first sight.”
“They blended 3 children and had one together after losing one to miscarriage. Their love remained strong and according to her husband they “did everything together”.”
