Minor injuries in Falls Highway crash

CORBIN — CORRECTION - Published March 27, 2014 - In a story about a two-car crash which appeared in the Wednesday edition of The Times-Tribune, it was erroneously reported that Carl Neal was assisting at the scene as a constable. While his constable vehicle was parked at the scene, in fact, Neal was there as a volunteer member of the fire department. We regret any confusion this may have caused.

One driver sustained minor injuries Tuesday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash on Cumberland Falls Highway.

According to Whitley County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Prewitt, David Young, of Corbin, was driving a Chevrolet Impala and stopped on Cox-Smith Lane near the intersection with Bee Creek Road.

Young was attempting a left turn onto Cumberland Falls Highway toward Corbin when he pulled into the path of a Chevrolet Silverado truck, the deputy said.

James Hubbs, of Woolum, was driving that truck and had two passengers with him — David McCreary, of Corbin, who was in the passenger seat, and Trenton Hubbs, of Barbourville, who was sitting in the back, according to Prewitt.

Prewitt explained that Young said he never saw the Silverado coming when he pulled out.

James Hubbs, who Prewitt said was traveling between 50 and 55 mph, said the Impala pulled in front of him at the last minute.

“He didn’t have time to try to avoid him or hit the brakes,” Prewitt said.

After impact, the Impala ended up in the southbound lane facing north — and the Silverado ended up traveling more than 100 feet from the crash site in a grassy field. The passenger front wheel of that truck snapped off and ended up on the edge of the northbound lane of travel.

Both lanes were shut down briefly while crews worked at the crash scene, then eventually one lane was opened for travel.

Prewitt leads the investigation and was assisted by Deputy John Hill. Also assisting at the scene were crew members with the Oak Grove Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department, Whitley County EMS and Constable Carl Neal.
