On September 14th, 2014, 911 calls came pouring into Georgetown and Lexington dispatchers regarding a drunk driver. The driver, later identified as Kayla Foster, was hitting barrels in the median, swerving, and hit another vehicle. Around 4:00 a.m. she ended up driving on a service road parallel to Iron Works Pike. From there she drove down an embankment, across the outbound traffic lane, over the median, and into oncoming traffic. She struck the vehicle of two people headed to work at Toyota. The female passenger was pronounced dead at the scene and the male driver would undergo years of continued medical treatment. Foster’s blood alcohol level was beyond the legal limit at the time of the fatal collision. Prosecutor on the case was Katie Bouvier. Lexington Police Officer Michael Carroll was the Lead Investigator for the Collision Reconstruction Unit.
