Man arrested on murder charge for deadly wrong-way crash

Police have arrested a man they say caused a deadly crash, driving the wrong way on New Circle Road.

24-year-old Adam Leake was taken into custody late Friday afternoon in Russell County.

He’s now charged with murder and DUI.

Lexington Police say Leake was drunk back in January, when he drove the wrong way and hit a car head-on, killing that driver, 40-year-old Connie Layne.
