Funeral to be held this week for teen who died in Owensboro crash

OWENSBORO, Ky (WFIE) - One person died and two others were injured after a single-vehicle crash in Owensboro on Friday night.

Authorities say the driver, 18-year-old Logan Davis, died from his injuries suffered in the wreck.

The Owensboro Police Department responded to the 4400 block of Medley Road for a single-vehicle injury crash just before 11:30 p.m.

Officials say Davis was initially trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated. They say he was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Authorities said two passengers from the vehicle were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

”If there’s anybody in this world that you’d want to resemble your life around, you’d want to be like Logan Davis,” said Owensboro Catholic Head Football Coach Jason Morris.

Senior Davis at Owensboro Catholic High School will be laid to rest this week after the weekend crash.

Owensboro Catholic head football coach Jason Morris says everyone loved Logan. Morris says he was a great student and the type of kid who would make your day better - always willing to help and always thinking of others.

”Always wanted to know about how you were doing, it was never about himself,” said Morris. “He’s just a special kid. It’s just tragic. Words can’t describe the loss that we have in our program right now. It’s a void that really can’t be filled. Only thing we can do is come together, put our heads together and fill it the best we can and just love on each other.”

Visitation for Logan is set for Tuesday from 2 to 8 pm at Glenn Funeral Home. A funeral mass will be held at 9 a.m. Wednesday at Steele Stadium on the campus of Kentucky Wesleyan College.
