For one high-school teacher, the morning of October 15, 2012, was unlike any of his other commutes to work. Sadly, this male teacher was involved in a fatal Spencer County car crash on his way to work at Bullitt East High School in Mt. Washington.
According to authorities, the deadly accident took place around 6:40 AM and involved a Honda and an F-150. The crash occurred at the intersection of Highway 3192 and Dale Lane in Spencer County.
Brian Walters, a 38-year-old English teacher at Bullitt East High School, died in the crash. Kentucky State Police indicated that he was driving a Honda and overcorrected after dropping off the right shoulder of the road. When he overcorrected, his car drove across both the eastbound and westbound lanes and struck an F-150 pickup truck.
The pickup driver’s name and condition have not been released, but he was taken to University Hospital for medical treatment. Sadly, Walters was pronounced dead at the accident scene.
Walters was a high-school English teacher for four years at Bullitt East, and he worked in that school district for seven years. He was also the girls’ varsity soccer team coach at Ballard High School. Walters is survived by his wife and two children.
The soccer team played their regional tournament on Tuesday night and wore red bands on their wrists in Walters honor, as he used to wear a red watch every practice and every game. The opposing team gave each soccer player a rose after the game to honor their coach.
Our Northern Kentucky accident injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Schachter, Hendy, & Johnson would like to extend our condolences to the family, friends, coworkers, and students who lost Mr. Walters, and we would like to wish the injured pickup truck driver a full recovery.
