Knox County man dies in crash

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.

The investigation continues by Patrolman J. Lawson. He was assisted by Sgt. R. Clark as well as the Knox County Sheriff’s Department, Barbourville Fire Department and the Knox County EMS.

Suspect sought after meth lab discovery

The remnants of a one-step methamphetamine lab were discovered Saturday in an outbuilding behind a home along Wise Owl Road, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Deputy Larry Parrott, along with Deputy Jeff Blunschi, responded about 7 p.m. to a complaint of a possible meth lab. With the help of a landlord, they found the remnants of the lab along with several components used to make the drug.

A suspect is being sought in connection with the discovery and Root said the investigation continues.

Flat Lick man arrested for shooting at utility worker

A Flat Lick man who was angered because his water was disconnected was arrested Friday after he fired a gun at a utility worker, according to Knox County Sheriff John Pickard.

Pickard said he and deputies responded to Possum Hollow Road where a utility worker said Gregory S. Lamb, 41, had fired a gun at him and threatened to kill him. Lamb reportedly also threatened to kill any law enforcement officers who came to his home.

When interviewed by police, Lamb admitted he had fired the gun to scare the utility worker.

Lamb was arrested and charged with first-degree wanton endangerment.

In addition to Pickard, deputies Roy Gambrel and Keith Liford responded as well as two Kentucky State Police troopers.

Gambrel continues the investigation.  

Lamb was jailed in the Knox County Detention Center.
