Tabitha Vanhorn, Michael Vanhorn Killed in Truck Accident on SH 194 E in Pike County, K

Pike County, KY — January 9, 2023, 70-year-old Tabitha Vanhorn and 43-year-old Michael Vanhorn died in a collision with a dump truck on State Highway 194 E in Pike County.

Authorities say the incident happened shortly before 4:30 p.m. on Highway 194 E at U.S. Highway 119. Preliminary investigation suggests Tabitha Vanhorn was driving a Toyota RAV4 on US-119 when she started to turn onto KY-194. As the SUV crossed through the roadway it entered the path of a westbound Mack dump truck and the two collided.

Tabitha Vanhorn and her passenger Michael Vanhorn were transported to an area hospital where they were later pronounced dead. No other injuries were reported.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

I don't have any specific reason to doubt what the press says about this accident, but I've done this long enough to wonder if they really have the whole story. Accidents of all kinds sometimes involve factors police miss (or aren't trained to look for) at first, which is why preliminary findings should only the starting point for closer, more thorough investigation. It's always important to find the facts and let them tell the story—particularly in situations where a victim is unable to share their side of it. I just hope authorities will take the time and care needed to get satisfactory answers for the folks who need and deserve them.
