fatal crash

A crash in Perry County in the late evening of Monday, November 27, 2017, has resulted in the death of two men. Troopers with Kentucky State Police Post 13 in Hazard were conducting a Traffic Safety Checkpoint on old KY Highway 80 in the Combs community, when they observed a vehicle abruptly stop prior to their location. The vehicle turned around and sped away eastbound toward Airport Gardens. Troopers accessed their cruisers and attempted to locate the vehicle in the direction of travel. A short distance away, they encountered the vehicle, a 2002 Nissan passenger car, which had overturned on the roadway near Turner Brother’s Car Care Center on Combs Road. Troopers located two individuals who were completely ejected from the car. Johnny Gibson, 58, of Bulan, was transported to Hazard ARH where he was pronounced dead. Donovan Miller, 28, of Leburn, transported to Hazard ARH, then airlifted to Pikeville Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased. Toxicology results are pending.
