Remembering Cody Emery
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The question so many people are asking: What caused a young man to lose control of his car during rush hour Monday afternoon on Man O’ War Boulevard and collide with a fire truck on its way to a call?
Investigators still don’t have an answer but we do know much more about the driver who was killed in the collision.
Friends and family say Cody Emery, 23, was a wonderful, God-fearing man who touched every life that he came in contact with.
According to police, a fire truck, with lights and sirens on, was traveling near Nicholas Park Drive when Emery crossed the median and was t-boned by the fire engine.
Police still aren’t sure why his car jumped the curb and went into oncoming traffic. Emery’s mom says he may have hydroplaned.
Emery died at UK Hospital, according to the coroner.
ABC 36 is still waiting on preliminary autopsy results.
The firefighter who was driving the fire truck was treated and released from the hospital on Monday with minor injuries.
Services for Emery will be held in the Choateville Christian Church at 1:00 p.m. on Friday.
Interment will follow in the Sunset Memorial Gardens.
Visitation will be held at the church from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday and from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Friday.
Contributions in Emery’s memory are suggested to: Camp Calvary, 475 Cr-1005, Mackville, KY 40040.
