I-75 traffic reduced to one lane following crash

CORBIN — Traffic on both northbound and southbound I-75 at mile post 30 was reduced to one lane after a sport utility vehicle carrying two Clay County men was involved in a crash Monday evening north of Corbin.

The crash happened at 6:43 p.m. According to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department, a black 2002 Ford Excursion driven by Stephen E. Hoop, 52, of Manchester, was headed north on I-75 when his left front tire blew out.

The driver lost control and his SUV shot through the median with the left front wheel making impact with the retaining fence. The SUV went 75 feet and flipped over on its right side when it came to a final rest. Hoop, and the passenger, Scott White, 44, also of Manchester, were shaken up and had some minor cuts and scrapes.

A crew from Ambulance, Inc. checked Hoop and White for injuries. Both men — who were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash — did not want to be transferred to a hospital and refused treatment.

Authorities said a state crew had to come to the scene and loosen the retaining fence. Also those assisting at the scene were members of West Knox Volunteer Fire and Rescue. Deputy Larry Parrott was the investigating officer.
