Corbin Police seek help to find man and woman involved in hit-and-run accident


Corbin Police are seeking the public's help to find a man and a woman involved in a hit-and-run accident near McDonald's on Master Street Friday afternoon.
According to Major Rob Jones, public affairs officer, police are looking for Kathleen and Howard Johnson. The duo along with a male juvenile were reportedly in the pickup truck that came out of McDonald's parking lot and hit Eleanore Stewart's Chevrolet.
As a result of the collision, Stewart was trapped in the vehicle and Corbin Firefighters had to use the Jaws-of-Life to cut off the driver's side door.
Jones said the pickup truck was seen traveling west on Master Street toward Corbin.
"It went up toward Laurel County and turned near KFC," Jones said. "It got stuck in a yard and they took off on foot."
Jones added that police took the juvenile into custody when the truck got stuck in the yard of a house on Magnolia Lane. The juvenile told police he wasn't driving, but Jones said police will wait until the Johnsons are in custody before determining who was driving.
Stewart was taken by ambulance to Baptist Regional Medical Center.
Anyone with information about the Johnsons is asked to contact Corbin Police, 528-1122.
