Crash near Engineer Street Bridge injures woman

CORBIN — A woman was taken to the hospital Monday following a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 25E near the Engineer Street Bridge, according to Corbin Police Department K-9 Officer Steve Meadors. The crash happened about 3:30 p.m. as Sarah Davenport drove a Ranger XLT toward Master Street and she swerved to avoid a slowed or stopped vehicle ahead of her. When Davenport swerved, witnesses said she crossed the centerline and struck an oncoming GMC Sierra pickup truck driven by Glenn Baker. Davenport’s passenger, Donna Hall, was entrapped in the vehicle and, once she was freed from the wreckage, she was transported to the hospital for treatment of her injuries. Davenport wasn’t injured and Baker suffered a minor bruise on his leg. No further details were available at press time. In addition to the Corbin Police Department, the city’s fire department and Knox County EMS responded.
