Louisville Water lost a member of its family today. Hydrant crew member Jimmy Stone, a 17-year employee, was killed this afternoon while working at a job site. He and a fellow team member, Chad Harper, were hit by a car as they were repairing a hydrant at 23rd and Oak Streets.

Chad, a 23-year employee, is recovering from injuries. According to the police, an accident occurred at the intersection and one of the cars hit our employees.

Please keep Chad, Jimmy’s family and the Louisville Water family in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
