Crash at 25E-Master St. intersection injures one

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

The act of texting while driving caused a two-vehicle crash at a major Corbin intersection before noon Tuesday, according to Corbin Police K-9 Officer Steve Meadors.

The crash injured a Knox County woman and the driver who was texting was charged with two offenses.

The collision happened at the junction of U.S. 25E (Cumberland Gap Parkway) and Master Street.

Norman McCreary, 51, of Gray, was driving a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am west on U.S. 25E. He had gotten the green light and had just pulled out.  In McCreary’s car was a passenger, Roseanna Warren, 44, also of Gray.

A 2003 Honda Accord driven by Marshellia French, 41, of Corbin, was also going west on U.S. 25E at the same time, when police say she ran up on McCreary’s car.

According to witnesses, French’s car never hit the brakes, and apparently never saw McCreary’s vehicle. French told police she was texting at the time when the crash occurred.

Warren was flown by helicopter to the University of Kentucky Hospital in Lexington. She suffered a laceration to her forehead and abdominal pain.

The highway was shutdown for about 45 minutes to allow the medical helicopter to land at the collision scene. Along with Corbin Police at the scene were members of the Corbin Fire Department and the Knox County Ambulance service.

Police add French was charged with communication device violation, 1st offense, and failure to maintain insurance.

Meadors was the lead officer for the Corbin Police Department at the scene and continues to investigate.
