Signs marking site of Carrollton bus crash removed

(CARROLLTON, Ky., November 13th, 2003, 4:30 p.m.) -- The signs marking the site of the Carrollton bus crash have been removed temporarily, and family members are upset.

Most people remember that 27 people on a church bus from Radcliff were killed on the way home from Kings Island when drunk driver Larry Mahoney struck the bus on May 14, 1988. He was driving the wrong way on Interstate 71.

State transportation officials say the signs were taken down as part of a project to replace the aging signs with new ones.

Carrollton residents hope the signs will stay down because they don't like the town being known for that crash, and families of the victims fear the signs won't go back up.
