Community members gathered in Radcliff on Saturday to mark the 30th anniversary of the deadliest drunk driving crash in American history.

The accident took place on May 14, 1988, when a drunk driver hit a church bus carrying 60 people on Interstate 71 near Carrollton, Kentucky.

Karolyn Nunnallee’s daughter Patti was 10 years old when she died in the crash. Nunnallee channeled her grief into activism, eventually becoming the president of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Kentucky State Police say the two children who were killed in a school bus crash were both 3 years old. Police identified the young victims from Monday’s crash as Ryder Deitz and Caroline Tuttle, both of Carrollton.
