One air lifted, one arrested after violent crash

Police believe alcohol may have played a role in a violent overnight crash.

Powell County Sheriff's deputies say the driver of a Chevy pickup was thrown from the vehicle after crashing into a ditch on Hardwicks Creek Road early Tuesday morning. The driver, whose name isn't being released, was air lifted to UK Hospital with serious injuries.

Deputies say a passenger ran away from the crash, but then later returned and was arrested. His name and charges haven't been released.
