Family is involved in fatal accident moments after son's graduation killing both parents and leaving 18-year old graduate and brother needing surgery

A Kentucky couple were killed in a car accident on their way home from watching their son graduate from high school over the weekend.

Nancy Barnett and her husband Lyndon died in the fatal collision just moments after their son Dalton received his high school diploma from Fleming County High School, in Flemingsburg, on Saturday morning.

Dalton, 18, was injured in the crash alongside his brother, 26-year-old Michael Barnett, who are both currently being treated at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. The extent of their injuries remains unclear, though family friends have said both of the brothers required 'urgent surgery' and are now recovering.

Fleming County High Principal Stephanie Emmons announced the tragic incident in a statement posted to the school’s Facebook page, in which she asked members of the local community to ‘uplift this family.’

‘There was a car accident involving he and his family shortly after his graduation ceremony,’ Emmons wrote. ‘We have learned that his mother, Nancy Barnett, and his father, Lyndon Barnett, both passed away as a result of the accident.’

Nancy, 53, had been driving the family’s car near the intersection of Ky.-11 and Ky.-599 at 9:15am on Saturday morning when it collided with a pick-up truck as she was making a left turn, Kentucky State Police said.

The family had been on their way to a celebratory breakfast when the fatal accident occurred, friends of the family have said.

Nancy was pronounced dead at the scene, while Lyndon, 56, died shortly after being transported to hospital.

The driver of the pick-up truck, 52-year-old Anthony Bailey, and his passenger, Nancy Bailey, were unharmed in the incident, police said. An investigation is currently underway to determine precisely how the collision occurred.
