Two Tri-County residents were seriously injured during the Monday morning rush hour after a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 25 in North Corbin.
The drivers of the two vehicles — Clyde Hamilton, 42, of Corbin, and Justin Adams, 19, of Gray — suffered serious injuries in the collision and were flown to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville.
Hamilton was listed in stable condition late Monday afternoon, while Adams’ condition was unknown at that time by hospital officials.
The crash happened around 8:07 a.m. According to Laurel County Sheriff John Root, witnesses at the scene and the investigation indicated the BMW car driven by Adams was southbound on U.S. 25 when he rounded a curve, crossed into the northbound lane and collided head-on with a Chevy Avalanche driven by Hamilton. After the collision, both vehicles came to rest blocking the roadway.
Deputy John Inman continues to investigate. He and other sheriff’s deputies were assisted by the West Knox Volunteer Fire Department, the London-Laurel County Rescue Squad and Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County.
