Two people involved in Corbin wreck Thursday

CORBIN — Two people were involved in a crash Thursday afternoon between a car and motorcycle at the intersection of Ky. 1232 (Barbourville Highway) and East Wyrick Street in Corbin.

According to Corbin Police, the crash occurred around 1 p.m.

A Suzuki motorcycle driven by Robert Leigh, 23, of Corbin, was headed east on Ky. 1232, going away from town, when a Chevrolet Malibu driven by Brenda Canada, 22, of Williamsburg, was on East Wyrick and was apparently turning left on 1232 when her car hit the motorcycle.

The driver of the Chevy told police she didn’t see the motorcycle when she pulled out just before the collision.

A witness at the scene told police that Canada was the only one in the car at the time. She was taken to Baptist Health Corbin in a private vehicle to be treated for possible injuries.

Leigh was treated at the scene by a Knox County EMS crew for an injury to his left hand, and may be taken to the Corbin hospital by his family to check for further injuries.

Captain Coy Wilson of the Corbin Police Department was the investigating officer, and was assisted by other Corbin Police officers, along with members of the Corbin Fire Department, a Knox County EMS ambulance, and a Knox County Sheriff’s Deputy. Col. Wilson continues to investigate.
