According to Kentucky State Police TFC Don Trosper, a 1995 GMC van driven by Vernon N. Jacobs, 63, of Indianapolis, Ind. was southbound on the interstate when Jacobs drifted in the lane, nearly hitting a tractor-trailer.

He swerved to avoid that collision, lost control, and overturned in the median. The van came to rest in the northbound left lane, where it was struck by a tractor-trailer driven by Harold Fitzwater, 37, of Nancy.

Jacobs and three of his passengers, Rose Jacobs, 41, Linda Jacobs, 51 and Christopher Thompson, 19, all of Indianapolis, were transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, Tenn.. A fourth passenger, Alphonso Jacobs, Sr., 60, of Indianapolis was taken to the Baptist Regional Medical Center in Corbin. All five had non-life-threatening injuries. The driver was the only one in the van wearing a seat belt.

Fitzwater, who was in a seat belt, was not injured. No drug or alcohol use is suspected in the crash.

Kentucky State Trooper TFC Parrish Baker continues to nvestigate the crash and was assisted at the scene by Kentucky State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement and Whitley County Emergency Medical Services.

Two arrested for stealing scrap metal

Laurel County Sheriff’s deputies James Sizemore and William Bo Harris investigated a complaint of a burglary in progress on Dorthae Road south of London.

When deputies arrived they found a vehicle filled with scrap metal reported stolen. Sizemore and Harris located Delbert W. Profitt, 53, of Gray and Laura M. Taylor, 27, of Corbin in a mobile home in the area and determined the vehicle found belonged to them. They were both arrested and face charges of theft by unlawful taking. The recovered property was returned to the owner.

Profitt and Taylor were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center. Deputy Gilbert Acciardo assisted in the arrests.

Irate woman jailed

A visit from a social worker landed a Corbin woman in jail Wednesday.

Eloise M. Browing, 45, of Corbin was arrested and sent to the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy William Bo Harris was dispatched to an apartment off American Greeting Road, prompted by a 911 call from a social worker making a visit there.

The social worker said the client in question was “irate” according to Sheriff John Root.

Harris’ presence made little difference in the woman’s demeanor, Root said. Browing became irate with Harris, shoving documents in his face, and progressed to making “a loud disturbance” to those near the scene.

According to Root, “..Harris arrested her, and she continued to be loud and disorderly, and resisted being arrested.

“Even as she was being led to the police car, she continued to be disorderly.”

Browing faces charges of menacing, first-degree disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
