MOMS Two former college volleyball stars and their daughters killed in car crash Carrie Urton McCaw and Lesley Drury Prather were traveling to a tournament with their 12-year-old daughters, Kacey and Rhyan, at the time of the crash. Feb. 17, 2020, 5:30 PM EST / Source: TODAY By Kerry Breen Two former college volleyball stars and their 12-year-old daughters were killed in a car crash in Missouri on Friday morning. Carrie Urton McCaw, 44, and Lesley Drury Prather, 44, were driving to a volleyball tournament in Kansas City with their daughters, Kacey McCaw and Rhyan Prather, when their minivan was struck by a pickup truck. The pickup truck had veered into oncoming traffic just outside of Lake St. Louis, Missouri, and collided with their car and another vehicle, according to NBC St. Louis affiliate KSDK-TV. The other vehicle that was hit had two people inside, both of whom were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the pickup truck was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, according to KSDK. Both McCaw and Prather were accomplished athletes. Prather played for the University of Louisville Cardinals volleyball team from 1998 to 2001, helping to lead the team to three conference championships and four NCAA appearances, according to a statement from the school. “We are heartbroken for those lost in the tragic auto accident yesterday traveling to a volleyball tournament,” said Vince Tyra, the vice president for athletics at the University of Louisville. “It directly impacted our volleyball community in many ways to include Sarah Petkovic, our Director of Operations for Volleyball. She lost her sister and former Cardinal Lesley Prather, and niece, Rhyan, in the accident.” McCaw was a standout athlete at Syracuse University from 1994 to 1997 who set the school record for matches played in a season, according to a statement from the school. McCaw, Prather and their daughters were from Louisville, Kentucky. Kacey and Rhyan played volleyball on the same KIVA (Kentucky Indiana Volleyball Academy) Sports club. “Our hearts are heavy with the loss of four beautiful souls in Carrie and Kacey McCaw and Lesley and Rhyan Prather,” wrote KIVA Sports on Facebook. “Our KIVA families will never be the same and we send prayers and love to all of the families touched by this tragedy.” In a second post, the club shared photos of its members reflecting “on the loss of 4 beautiful souls from our KIVA Volleyball family.” McCaw’s former high school honored her in a post Saturday afternoon. “The community of Assumption joins with the St. Raphael and KIVA communities as we mourn the tragic loss of Carrie Urton McCaw ‘94, her daughter Kacey and their dear friends Lesley and Rhyan Prather,” wrote the high school. “We send our deepest condolences, thoughts, and prayers to the McCaw and Prather families.” “Our parish and school community have suffered a tragic loss with the accident that claimed the lives of Carrie and Kacey McCaw,” read a Facebook post from the St. Raphael the Archangel Catholic Church in Louisville. “Carrie and Kacey were full of life and witnesses to Christ’s love through the way they lived their lives and served our parish. There are no words that will describe accurately the void that is left for their family, friends, and our community.” Prather had joined the Louisville Fire Department in 2016, according to the department's Facebook page. "Lesley joined the LFD family in October 2016, spending her entire career serving west Louisville. Lesley’s brother-in-law, Sash Petkovic, currently serves as a Firefighter with the Division. This is a terribly sad time for the Louisville Division of Fire and the entire community," its post read. Funeral and service arrangements have not yet been finalized, according to NBC Louisville affiliate WAVE-TV.

  14. Anyone that goes into a smoking-legal bar in PA today is a willing participant, both, employees and patrons. About half the bars in the region went to non-smoking about a decade ago when that law went into effect. Each side has their own venues. This is nothing about safety or health, it is just vindictiveness. If bars are forced to go non-smoking, they should maybe consider only allowing patrons who still smoke to enter. ...thus banning non-smokers. ...sure, the smokers wont be able to smoke, but at least the naggy non-smokers wont be in there.

  17. Neighbor strangled missing SC girl before killing himself, authorities say by KATIE CAVINESS | Sinclair Broadcast Group Tuesday, February 18th 2020 AA 4 VIEW ALL PHOTOS This undated photo provided by the Cayce Department of Public Safety shows Faye Marie Swetlik, who went missing since shortly after getting off her school bus near her South Carolina home Monday, Feb. 10, 2020. (Cayce Department of Public Safety via AP) COLUMBIA, S.C. (SBG) — A 6-year-old South Carolina girl who was abducted after school from her front yard was strangled by a neighbor who then killed himself, officials said Tuesday. Coroner: South Carolina girl's death caused by asphyxiation Officials held a press conference Tuesday Feb. 18, 2020 to discuss the coroner's findings in the death of 6-year-old Faye Marie Swetlik. (Video: WIS via CNN Newsource) Three days after Faye Marie Swetlik's mother frantically called 911 to report her daughter's disappearance Feb. 10, the girl's body was found. Her death is being investigated as a homicide. Around 10:30 a.m. on Feb. 13, authorities were called to a residence in the area where they found a "man bleeding on the back patio," later identified as Coty Scott Taylor. Investigators said it is their belief that Taylor, 30, abducted and killed the child, taking her body to the woods behind his townhome "in the shadow of the night" and "under the cover of darkness." Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher said in a Tuesday press conference that Swetlik died just a few hours after she was kidnapped.

(AP Photo/Sean Rayford) Taylor lived in the same neighborhood, just a few doors down from the 6-year-old in Cayce's Churchill Heights. Cayce is a suburb of South Carolina's state capital, with roughly 13,000 people, just west of Columbia. Cayce Public Safety Director Byron Snellgrove said "a hunch" led him to search the woods behind Taylor's residence where he personally found Swetlik's body. Investigators collected DNA evidence from Taylor's home and the wooded area, linking Taylor to her death. More than 200 officers searched for Swetlick, knocking on every door in the neighborhood and checking vehicles as they went in and out, according to The Associated Press.

(AP Photo/Sean Rayford) Authorities interviewed Taylor a day before Swetlik's body was discovered. He was described as "cooperative, and gave consent to agents to look through the house." Snellgrove said they initially saw nothing in the home to suggest Swetlik was ever there. Taylor had a roommate but investigators said Taylor was the "sole perpetrator of this crime." It's believed that Taylor placed Swetlik's body in the woods on Feb. 13, just hours before authorities discovered her. Investigators had been following a trash truck around the neighborhood that morning and sifted through every can as it was emptied. Taylor was found dead shortly after authorities found a child's polka dot rain boot and a soup ladle covered with freshly dug dirt inside his trash can; those clues eventually leading to a crack in the case.

(AP Photo/Sean Rayford) Out of respect for Swetlik's family, the coroner only wished to discuss Swetlik in front of the cameras. Fisher refused to release any details about the condition of Swetlik's body or discuss other ways she may have been injured. Taylor's death was not discussed at the press conference. WCIV reports Taylor killed himself by slitting his throat. Taylor had no known criminal record leading up Swetlik's disappearance and Snellgrove said Taylor did not know the girl or her family. The girl's disappearance shocked Cayce, The Associated Press reports. Several prayer vigils were held while she was missing and after her body was found. A public memorial will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at Trinity Baptist Church in Cayce. SEE VIDEO REPORTS ; https://wjactv.com/news/nation-world/coroner-south-carolina-girls-death-caused-by-asphyxiation

Sunday's race was postponed because of rain. (AP Photo/Terry Renna) DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WZTV) — NASCAR driver Ryan Newman is awake and talking to doctors after a horrific crash during the final lap at the Daytona 500 on Monday night. Newman crashed at the end of the race and his car hit a wall, flipped, rolled over and caught fire as he skidded across the finish line. Newman's driver's side door was hit at full speed during the horrific crash. He was immediately taken by medics from the car and transported to Halifax Medical Center, where NASCAR said he was in serious, but non-life threatening condition as of Monday night. Now, representatives with Newman's team say he's awake and speaking: "Ryan Newman remains under the care of doctors at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. He is awake and speaking with family and doctors. Ryan and his family have expressed their appreciation for the concern and heartfelt messages from across the country. They are grateful for the unwavering support of the NASCAR community and beyond." - Roush Fenway Racing Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin didn't learn about the extent of Newman's crash until after the race, when FOX Sports said they wouldn't be interviewing him after his burnouts. Hamlin and owner Joe Gibbs apologized for the team's celebration - not knowing the extent of Newman's crash. 6,122 people are talking about this FOX Sports NASCAR reporter Bob Pockrass said Hamlin went to visit Newman in the hospital before his trip to New York City and spoke with Newman's dad. Well-wishes and prayers poured in from the NASCAR community and beyond for Newman.
