LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A man is facing charges in connection to a crash that killed an elderly couple earlier this month.

44-year-old Eric Cobb is charged with the following:

  • Operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance
  • Possession of marijuana

The crash happened Sunday, August 14, and killed Evelyn and David Powers. The couple was on their way home from church when an oncoming vehicle collided with their car just a minute from their home.
