1 dead, 8 injured in I-24 crash near Lone Oak on Friday


The Paducah Police Department says an 18-year-old Orlando, FL, teen was killed in a one-vehicle wreck on Interstate 24 early Friday morning.

Officials say Tracy Ann Harrison, 37, of Orlando was driving a 2006 Chrysler minivan west on the interstate.

The vehicle ran off the right shoulder of the road and Harrison over-corrected, causing the van to roll several times before coming to rest in the middle of the roadway.

Several of the passengers were ejected from the minivan.

Officials say, Harrison’s son Jaleel Beirsay, 18, was killed. 

Also injured in the wreck were Harrison and her other three children: Alexandria Myers, 10; Travion Harrison, 4; and Andreanna Myers, 13; and Trisha Nelson, 31, and her two children: Satonya Thomas, 11; and Garsha Thomas, 15.

They all are residents of Orlando.

The eight were taken to Lourdes Hospital and Baptist Health Paducah.

Harrison and two of her children, and one of the Thomas' children, were transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.

Nelson and the other children were treated locally and released.

Beirsay was pronounced dead at the local hospital.

The Paducah Police Department’s Collision Reconstruction Team is reconstructing the wreck.
