Early Sunday crash claims life

A woman has died from injuries sustained in an early morning wreck Sunday morning in the Stinking Creek community.

Knox County Dispatch was notified about 12:18 a.m. Sunday morning of a single vehicle accident with injuries on KY 223 near Binghamtown Cemetery. Knox County Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Lawson responded to the accident, where he observed a Chevrolet pickup truck overturned on its side, over an embankment off the roadway. The pickup truck was traveling eastbound on KY 223 at a high rate of speed when the driver lost control in a curve, striking a guardrail, sending the truck airborne over the embankment. The vehicle rolled, ejecting both the driver and passenger, coming to rest near a residence.
