A Kentucky woman and all four of her children tragically lost their lives this month during a head-on collision. One of the vehicles involved in the crash was driving in the wrong lane.


On Saturday, June 6, 2021, authorities revealed that a fatal accident occurred in Lexington, Kentucky, claiming the lives of several people. A driver was going in the wrong direction on Interstate 75 when the crash happened.

Authorities revealed that the vehicle struck another one that was carrying five people. Sadly, the car's driver going the wrong way died along with the people in the other vehicle.

The accident happened at around 12:23 p.m. on June 5, 2021, according to a tweet by the Lexington Police Department. The car going the wrong way was described as a “dark passenger” vehicle.

A 38-year-old woman drove it. The southbound car was being driven in the northbound lanes before it struck a family’s car leaving behind many victims, including four that were children.


Police have since identified the suspect as Jamaica Natasha Caudill of Madison County. Three of the children and the other car's driver had to be taken to a local hospital, where they all passed away.

That weekend was meant to be a good one as Rhonda [Branch] was moving into a new home.

The Fayette County coroner identified the victims as Catherine Greene, 30; Santanna Greene, 11; Karmen Greene, 9; Brayden Boxwell, 5; and Jack Greene, 2. The mother and her children were from Owentown.


The car crash remains under investigation by the Lexington Police Department Collision Reconstruction Unit. Trish Bryant, Catherine’s adoptive mother, mourned the loss of her family to WLWT, stating:

"It's very, very hard, and the mere number — five at once — is very hard to handle."


Bryant shared how much her mother had loved all her children and would’ve done anything for them. She also noted how Catherine never allowed any of them to call her their stepmother.

Two children were shared with her husband, Jon Greene, while the others were bonus children. A GoFundMe account has since raised more than $15,000 to help cover funeral costs.


In March 2021, a Spring, Texas mother, and grandmother became involved in a suspected drunk driving crash. Sadly, the mother, Porsha Branch, died in the crash with her 7-month old son, Drake.

Porsha’s mother, Rhonda Branch, survived because she was driving behind her daughter when the incident happened. That weekend was meant to be a good one as Rhonda was moving into a new home.
