LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The victims of Tuesday's fatal motorcycle accident were identified Wednesday.
The Jefferson County Coroner said 21-year-old Kendra Crawford and 22-year-old Christopher Walker were killed when the motorcycle they were riding crashed in Jeffersontown Tuesday morning.
The crash happened in the 4100 block of Rivulet Court just off Blankenbaker Parkway around 1 a.m., but police were not called to the scene until later.
Police said a resident heard a loud noise in the early hours of Tuesday morning, but it wasn't until around 8 a.m. when the victims were discovered in two separate backyards.
Investigators said Walker hit a median as he drove southbound on Blankenbaker Parkway and the impact caused Crawford to be thrown off the motorcycle. She then struck the sound barrier wall and Walker was later thrown from the motorcycle and hit a tree. It is believed both were killed on impact.
