Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Bell, Clay, Harlan, Jackson, Knox, Laurel, Leslie, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Wayne and Whitley County until 11 p.m. While the worst of the weather held off this afternoon, it looks like we will still see some strong storms later tonight, generally between 8 p.m. and midnight. These storms will likely feature strong winds and hail, with heavy rain and an isolated tornado (mainly possible in the Cumberland Valley/I-75 corridor) being the secondary threats. Keep it locked here for the latest.
Police say a drunk driver killed a man pulled over on the side of I-75 in Laurel County.
24 year old Austin Meredith is charged with murder, DUI and wanton endangerment for the crash near mile marker 30 on Saturday.
State police tell us the victim, Howard White, stopped to check the load on the wrecker he was driving.
That's when investigators say Meredith crashed the box truck he was driving into White and the wrecker.
Two people inside the wrecker were not hurt.
