I-75 crash sends Laurel man to hospital

Two cars in wreck north of London

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

A two-car crash Monday morning on I-75 in Laurel County sent the injured driver of one of the cars to a Lexington hospital.

Peter Wayne Newby, 33, of Cox Lane, London, was airlifted by medical helicopter to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.

No injuries were reported to the driver of the other car involved, John Smith, of Miamisburg, Ohio.

The wreck happened around 10:15 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-75, approximately two miles north of London.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root reports that apparently, according to investigators and witnesses, a black-colored Saturn driven by Newby was southbound on the Interstate when it struck a southbound Chevrolet Impala being driven by Smith in the car’s rear end, causing the Saturn to travel out of control into the fenced median of I-75.

That shredded the Saturn’s left side, with the car coming to rest against the fenced median.

Deputy Shane Rice, along with Deputies John Inman, Brandon Broughton and Gilbert Acciardo were at the scene of the two-car crash. Assisting at the scene were London Police officer Jordan Hopkins, PHI Medical Helicopter of London, Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County, the London-Laurel Rescue Squad, London Fire Department and the Laurel County Fire Department.

Deputy Rice is continuing the investigation.
