Baby in fair condition; police return to scene of fatal crash in Woodford

Versailles police were back on the scene Tuesday of a crash that killed three people and injured a baby girl strapped in a child-safety seat.

"We're going back over what we did yesterday," Versailles Police Lt. Daniel Clark said.

Destiny Reynolds, 11 months old, was listed in fair condition Tuesday morning at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, a spokeswoman said.

"It does not appear that seat belts were in use, except for the infant, who was in a child-restraint seat," Clark said. "That's what saved her."

Those who died after the Monday afternoon crash were Amanda Tackett Reynolds, 19, who is thought to have been driving; her friend Heather Sutherland, 20; and Reynolds' niece, Summer Evans, 8. Amanda Tackett Reynolds was Destiny's mother.

Amanda Reynolds was driving to her home on McCracken Pike when the crash occurred at 3:40 p.m. Monday on McCracken about 21/2 miles north of Versailles, police said. The westbound Honda Accord ran off the right side of the road and the driver overcorrected, then the car ran off the left side of the road, struck a rock mailbox, hit a plank fence and overturned.

The speed limit on McCracken Pike is 55 mph, but it appeared that the car was going faster than that, Clark said.

Clark said he does not suspect alcohol as a factor in the crash.
