16-year-old dies in collision

HARDIN Co., Ky. (WHAS 11)--School counselors are at Central Hardin High School are helping students cope with the loss of a fellow classmate.

16-year-old Audrey Shoulders died Tuesday afternoon in a two-vehicle collision.

The collision happened at the intersection of Bacon Creek Road and Kentucky 222.

Police say Shoulders' vehicle collided with a black truck.

Both passengers in that truck are expected to be OK.

The following statement is from Hardin County Schools Superintendent Teresa Morgan regarding the tragic events of this week:

"The students and staff of Hardin County Schools have endured tragic loss over the last two days.  Lakewood Elementary School teacher Suzanne Dennis passed away Monday morning and Audrey Shoulders, a Central Hardin High School junior, was taken from us yesterday.  We will continue to have counselors available to those who need them and will provide any services we need that will ensure all HCS family members are ready to move forward. 

There are certainly lots of broken hearts today.  We have survived tragedy before and we will this time.  While spirits are burdened with unspeakable pain, our students and staff will persevere.  We ask the members of our community and the other members of our district family to keep the Dennis family and the Shoulders family in your thoughts and prayers."
