A Knox County man died after being involved in a crash that shut down U.S. 25E in Barbourville for about two hours Saturday, according to Barbourville Police Detective Steve Owens.

The crash happened when a red 2008 Chevrolet was driven into the path of a white 1999 Porsche that was traveling north on U.S. 25E. Both vehicles came to rest on the southbound side of the highway. The occupants of both cars had to be extricated by the Barbourville Fire Department.

Three people were injured in the crash, one of whom had to be flown to the University of Louisville Hospital. Another man, David Epperson, 74, of Knox County, died after he was airlifted to the University of Tennessee Hospital.
