Two sent to Knox County Hospital following crash

CORBIN — By John L. Ross Staff Writer

Two people ended up at Knox County Hospital after a mid-afternoon crash east of Barbourville Monday.

William Mills, of Knox County, was driving a Chevrolet Monte Carlo. According to Knox County Deputy Keith Liford, Mills was attempting to turn onto KY 11 from Gorman Ridge Lane when he pulled into the path of another vehicle heading east.

That vehicle, a Chevrolet 4X4 truck, was being driven by Larry Stewart. Liford said Stewart had no chance to slow down.

“It’s a blind area,” Liford said. “It can be hard to see to get out.”

Stewart’s truck struck Mills’ Monte Carlo in the driver-side door, and sent it into a field off Hammons Lane.

Liford said Mills had to be extricated from the vehicle, as the door had him pinned in the car.

He said Mills received injuries to his left hip and lower legs, likely from the door crushing in.

Stewart received injuries to his chest and stomach, according to Liford.

No updates on their conditions were available at press time.

Knox County EMS and the Richland Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department assisted at the scene.
