Once on the scene, officials found that 22-year-old Rasheeda Mumford of Hopkinsville was traveling westbound on the parkway with two adult passengers and three children. Mumford informed officials that she had fallen asleep at the wheel just prior to the accident.

Trooper Jerry Knight was assisted on the scene by Trooper Bob Winters, Muhlenberg County EMS and the Graham Fire Department.
