Documentary Made On Deadliest Drunken Driving Crash

Last updated on Tuesday, October 18, 2011

(ELIZABETHTOWN, KY) - Survivors of one of the nation’s deadliest drunken driving crashes are being interviewed for a documentary about the 1988 tragedy in northern Kentucky.

One survivor, Quinton Higgins, says now that he's a father, he thinks often of the crash near Carrollton that killed 27 people on a church bus. The bus was struck on Interstate 71 by a drunken driver whose blood-alcohol content was .24.

"Impact: After The Crash" is expected to be released in the spring of 2012. Higgins says it's important to get the word out about the perils of impaired driving, even if the events of the crash are hard to relive.

The film is directed by Jason Epperson and written and produced by Daniel Blake Smith.
