Bypass shut down, one injured following Friday crash

The Corbin Bypass was shut down for about 30 minutes Friday when a car T-boned an SUV.

Corbin Firefighters had to us the Jaws of Life to extricate Angie Goss, 31, of Corbin from her Jeep Cherokee, which suffered heavy damage to the left side. She was conscious but was taken by ambulance to Baptist Regional Medical.

According to Corbin Police Officer Steve Meadors, the wreck happened when Goss, who was traveling west on the bypass near Allison Blvd., missed her turn and attempted to make a U-turn.

"She pulled off onto the shoulder and when she swung back onto the roadway, the (car), which was following, hit her," Meadors explained.

The car, a Kia Rio, had to be towed from the scene, but neither the driver, Megan Yates, 20, of Corbin, nor the passenger, Robert Breeding, 23, of Corbin, were injured.

Knox County EMS also responded the wreck.
