Nearly 30 years since the darkest day in Kings Island history

A bus coming back from Kings Island was hit head on by a drunk driver just north of Louisville. This resulted in the horrific death of 27 people - mainly children. Although this was not something that happened at the park, this, my friends, is our history.

I'm from Carrollton and you wouldn't believe how many people here want that sign taken down.  Technically the crash didn't happen in Carrollton but it is widely known as the Carrollton Bus Crash.  Such a tragic event and the individual stories of the survivors are incredible.  One even went on to play football at the University of Kentucky!

Because they don't like that our town is basically known for that terrible crash and nothing else.  People will drive by on I71 and see the Carrollton exit and then see that sign and equate the two.  It's stupid but there definitely are people here who wish it would be removed.
