The young boy critically injured in a fatal wreck on Cox Mill Road Friday afternoon continues to recover at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
The Christian County Sheriff’s Office has released the official report from the incident, which identifies the juvenile as 4-year old Gabriel Ramey of Compton Road, Roaring Springs.
Officials at Vanderbilt say Ramey remains stabilized in a critical care unit in the children’s hospital and that is continuously under close watch.
The collision claimed the life of his mother—27-year old Crystal Ramey. The report says the driver of the other vehicle, 41-year old Michael Board of Oak Grove Loop, Eddyville; told police that Ms. Ramey never stopped at the stop sign on Cox Mill and drove directly into his path on Kentucky 117.
Board said he tried to stop, but couldn’t avoid a collision. Board was treated and released from Jennie Stuart Medical Center for relatively minor injuries.
Drugs and alcohol were not suspected as factors in the wreck, though blood samples were sent off just to be sure. Results of those tests are pending.
