Hopkins County Mother and Baby Killed

A mother and her ten-month-old baby are dead after a tragic accident in Hopkins County.

Kentucky State Police say 43-year-old Mitchell Sanders was in the process of paving a driveway on Beeny Lane on Aug. 6, 2007, and was attempting to off-load a tractor from a trailer.

That’s when police say the truck began to roll with the trailer still attached and the tractor still on it.

Police said the truck crossed Beeny Lane and traveled through a front yard, striking a mother and her two children.

Twenty-five-year-old Christy Caraway and her 10-month-old son, Landon Caraway were pronounced dead at the scene. Her daughter, 4-year-old Alexis Caraway was transported by ambulance to the Regional Medical Center where she was treated and released.

Sanders was not injured.
