A man tested positive for multiple drugs including fentanyl in a Northern Kentucky crash that killed his wife and injured three others, according to Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders.

Yakema Buckley, 39, of Independence, faces charges of murder and assault in connection to the Wednesday evening crash.

According to investigators, Buckley was the driver who put into motion a wrong-way crash on Pride Parkway, just north of Lakewood Drive around 5:15 p.m.

Crash investigators say he was driving a 2009 Cadillac STS southbound on Pride Parkway when his vehicle crossed the center grass median and traveled into the northbound lanes.

His car crashed into an oncoming 2001 Chevrolet Suburban. A 36-year-old man and two juveniles were in that car, officials with the Kenton County Police Department said.

Buckley's wife, 39-year-old Crystal Buckley, who was the passenger in the Cadillac, was killed in the crash.

Yakema Buckley and the three occupants of the Chevrolet Suburban were also injured. All three people in the Suburban were treated and released.
