The initial investigation indicates a 2013 Nissan passenger car, operated by a juvenile female was making a left turn onto KY-587, and struck a 2002 GMC Yukon, operated by Matashia Creech, 47 years old of McKee, that was traveling south. As a result of the collision between the two vehicles, the GMC Yukon overturned multiple times.

    Jackson Energy employees kicked off the holiday season by filling Thanksgiving food baskets as they ended a day of training in early November. The employees donated items to assemble 150 food baskets that were distributed throughout the region. Leftover items were donated to the Good Samaritan House Homeless Shelter in London. In Jackson County, food baskets were donated to the Jackson County Food Bank in McKee. “This is our way of helping needy families in the communities we serve during the holiday season,” said Jackson Energy President & CEO Carol Wright. Baskets were assembled during an all-employee meeting held at the London District Office. Administrative Assistant Lisa Baker coordinated the drive, and an assembly line of food, baskets and trimmings ringed the Jackson Energy meeting room. Employees began with an empty basket at one end of the line and finished with a holiday gift at the other end. Canned vegetables, boxes of brownie mix, macaroni & cheese, packs of instant potatoes and canned hams were added to the baskets as employees moved from table to table.
