A KCEOC school bus carrying six pre-schoolers and a bus monitor slipped off Johnson Hollow Road in Gray Wednesday morning enroute to the Gray/Wilton Child Development Center.

According to Knox County Deputy Keith “Buster” Liford, the bus driver, seven-year veteran Mary Walters, turned the bus around in a driveway, and on her way back out of Johnson Hollow – a narrow part of the road, too narrow for two vehicles to pass, the officer noted – she encountered a vehicle in the opposite lane, and her tires dropped off the shoulder.

With $200,000 in state money to spend on street repairs in the Knox County portion of Corbin, city officials are in the process of determining where and how the money will be spent.

At Monday’s meeting of the Corbin City Commission, the commissioners authorized Mayor Willard McBurney to sign a memorandum of agreement with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to receive the funds.

City Manager Marlon Sams said the city is not required to put up any matching funds to receive the money, which was earmarked by State Rep Jim Stewart, R- Flat Lick.
