All four occupants of the minivan were killed, said patrol Cpl. Dallas Thompson.The driver of the pickup suffered injuries not considered life-threatening, Thompson said. Two people in the other passenger car suffered no serious injuries, he added.The women and girls were headed to a volleyball tournament in Kansas City, according to a statement from Jared Rudiger, the tournament director.”Everyone connected to the Triple Crown NIT is devastated at learning of the loss of four members of the KIVA family who died in a car accident Friday on their way to the tournament,” the statement said. KIVA is the Kentucky Indiana Volleyball Academy.”Words are unable to express our sadness at the loss of Carrie and Kacey McCaw and Lesley and Rhyan Prather; we have been close partners with KIVA through the building of this event, and we will stand by them in this moment, along with all the KIVA families and loved ones,” the statement said.Carrie McCaw was identified as a Louisville firefighter.
