Laurel County, KY - Sheriff John Root is reporting that: Deputy Craig Sutton investigated a three vehicle injury hit and run traffic crash which occurred on U.S. 25 approximately 1 mile north of London on Wednesday afternoon March 9, 2016 at approximately 3:47 PM.
The investigating deputy reports that apparently a maroon colored 2003 Chrysler Concorde pulled out from a business and pulled out in the path of a southbound brown colored 2014 Ford Fusion, colliding with it causing severe damage to the Ford Fusion.
The Chrysler Concorde failed to stop at the scene of the crash, and continued southbound on U.S. 25 at a high rate of speed. As the Chrysler Concorde approached stopped traffic, she swerved her vehicle to the right apparently to avoid colliding with the stopped traffic traveling off the roadway into the ditch throwing debris onto a northbound 2011 Gold colored Chevrolet Malibu causing damage to the front bumper and roof area.
The Chrysler Concorde continued to flee into London turning onto 16th St. and then Mill Street and through assistance from personnel at TJ's towing the vehicle stopped off the roadway until deputies arrived at the scene.
Deputy Sutton conducted an investigation and identified the drivers of the vehicles:
Assisting on the investigation was Laurel Sheriff's Sgt. Robbie Grimes and Deputy Brandon Broughton. Also assisting was KSP Trooper Ben Graves.
