BELFRY, Ky. — A Mingo County woman is dead following a weekend collision in Belfry.
It happened Saturday evening in front of Dairy Queen on U.S. 119. Kentucky State Police are investigating after a vehicle driven by Miranda Ailiff, 25, of Belfry, allegedly crossed the median and struck another vehicle, killing Amy White, 38, of Crum, West Virginia.
Police say Ailiff was the only person in the vehicle at the time of the wreck. In addition to White, her vehicle was also occupied by her husband and 14-year-old child. White was pronounced dead at the scene. White’s husband and child were transported to the Tug Valley ARH Hospital and later released.
According to court documents, Ailiff showed signs of intoxication while being treated at the scene of the crash. A warrant was obtained by police to gather a blood sample from Ailiff.
Miranda Ailiff was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and other traffic charges. According to court documents, she pleaded not guilty to the charges Monday in Pike Circuit Court. She remains lodged in the Pike County Detention Center on a $2,000 cash bond. More charges are possibly pending.
