A Cadiz woman was killed in a single vehicle wreck on South Road in Trigg County Thursday afternoon, though her seven month old grandson was found alive after the pair had been reported missing several hours earlier.
The Trigg County Sheriff’s Office, Kentucky State Police and the Trigg County Rescue Squad spent much of the night looking for 63-yar old Waynette Cain of Cadiz and her grandson, who had last been seen at Tractor Supply in Hopkinsville.
Ms. Cain’s wrecked vehicle was located in the early morning hours near the five mile-marker. KSP says Ms. Cain lost control of her vehicle some time around 3:15 in the afternoon and that she ran off the road and hit a tree.
Her vehicle then traveled forward into a creek bed and dropped eight to nine feet. Ms. Cain was partially ejected and died at the scene, while the infant remained in his car seat inside the vehicle. The child was taken to Trigg County Hospital, where he was treated and released to family members.
