Pursuit ends when McCreary man crashes at end of parkway


Somerset —

Given his suspected involvement, the McCreary Sheriff had put out information about Lair, seeking the public’s help in capturing him. 
Keen was charged with alcohol intoxication and having prescription controlled substances not in their proper container. 
Both were lodged in the Pulaski Count Detention Center. 
Accidents at that intersection are not uncommon. According to Derek Stringer of the Pulaski County 911 Emergency Center, there have been approximately 50 wrecks there since December of 2010, after the section was blocked off and those headed west toward Russell County took a somewhat altered route on the bypass.
The number of accidents has lessened over time, said Stringer — at first, some occurred because drivers were used to going forward and not encountering a roadblock, or perhaps couldn’t see it due to visibility conditions — but they still happen, as evidenced by Friday’s incident.
Somerset Police units were assisted in the incident by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, Fifth District Constable Mike Wallace, the Pulaski County Detention Center, and the Eubank Police Department.
