Family Killed In Crash Remembered

Posted: Updated:

CAMPBELL COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) A crash in Campbell County claimed the lives of five people earlier this week. Among those killed was a young family of four. 

Brandon Lawson, his fiancee Taylor Koch, and their two little ones, 21-month-old Brendan and 6-month-old Isabella died in the crash.

"He took care of them. He really did. She loved her kids too. It's just hard to talk about," said family friend Shawnda Whitney. "They just didn't let the negative get them down, they stayed positive and you don't find a lot of young kids like that anymore."

Investigators say it appears that Lawson lost control while driving on US 27 in Cold Spring, he crossed the center line and hit an oncoming Ford Taurus head-on. Sharon Groves in the Ford Taurus also died.

"I couldn't imagine that day, seeing my brother in such a tragedy like that," said Lawson's stepbrother Josh Alford.

Alford told LEX 18 that Lawson was determined to never give up. He'd recently proposed to Kock and had just gotten a promotion in management at KFC where he had started working six-years-ago as a cook.

"For something like this to happen to him, it's just unexplainable, I don't understand," said Alford. 

Alford says that Lawson spent all of his free time with his fiancee and children. They were his world.

"I mean, if you didn't know Brandon, then you didn't know his family because they were all one," he said.

Whitney says that Lawson and Koch worked hard to make a life of their own.

"I think they were going to make it, I really do. They loved each other and that's I guess, all that matters," she said.
