Car submerges into Laurel River

A Whitley County woman and her passengers were able to get out of their car before it submerged into the Laurel River on Tuesday.

According to Laurel County Sheriff John Root, deputies received a report of a submerged vehicle in the river. When they got there, the driver, Katrina M. Grubb, of Rockholds, told them she parked the 2007 Suzuki Forenza on a sloped parking area next to the river.

Grubb and all of her passengers got out of the Suzuki when it began to roll towards the river, and they all made attempts to stop the car from going into the water, but were unsuccessful.

The car then rolled into the river and was completely submerged. The Laurel County Rescue Squad, along with a local wrecker service, were contacted and divers were able to hook the car with cables, enabling the Suzuki to be recovered. Once ashore, the car was found to be in neutral.

An insurance report was filed by deputies, and currently no charges are pending in the investigation.

Deputies Robbie Grimes, Tyler Morris and Larry Parrott assisted at the scene, along with the Laurel County Rescue Squad and the Laurel County Department of Public Safety.

Corbin man arrested on non-support, other charges

A man wanted for flagrant non-support, and failing to appear in court, was arrested by a Whitley County Sheriff’s lieutenant Tuesday.

Jeffrey T. Adams, of Corbin, was charged with giving a false name, menacing and resisting arrest, along with a flagrant nonsupport warrant from Knox County, and a failure to appear warrant from Laurel County. Adams was jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center in Williamsburg where he remains, waiting on transfer to Knox and Laurel counties.

Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell reported that Lt. Dennis Foley went to Fox Run Road in Corbin early Tuesday morning to serve the two arrest warrants for failing to appear in court, and flagrant non-support. When Foley made contact with the resident of the house, Adams gave Foley a false name in an attempt to hide his identity, knowing there were outstanding warrants for his arrest.

Foley recognized Adams and placed him under arrest. Adams was over $10,000 in child support at the time the warrant was signed in November 2012 by Judge Skip Hammons of Knox District Court.
