Meth found after accident
A London woman is potentially facing serious drug-related charges after a Friday morning accident.
According to Sheriff Randy Waters McCreary County emergency responders were dispatched to an accident call around 5:45 a.m. that morning. The individual who notified dispatch of the potential crash stated they had witnessed a car drive off the road just north of the Ranger Station on northbound US 27.
The vehicle left the roadway and down an embankment, making it difficult for emergency responders to reach the car.
The driver of the vehicle, whose name has not been released, was eventually rescued from the scene and taken to the Baptist Regional Medical Center in Corbin.
McCreary County Deputy Mike Neal worked the scene, and reportedly found a baggie containing over 25 grams of methamphetamine in the vehicle.
Officers believe the woman had recently picked up the drugs from a supplier, and was returning to her home in London to further process the narcotics for resale.
The case has been turned over to the Lake Cumberland Area Drug Task Force for further investigation.
Members of McCreary County EMS and the Whitley City Fire Department assisted at the scene.
