Drug usage suspected in Corbin fatal collision

A Corbin man died after crashing into a tractor-trailer on Saturday. Travis Mahan, 31, was traveling south on U.S. 25 near London when he crossed the center line in his 2006 Chrysler 300 and struck the vehicle driven by Jimmy Gray, 55, of Barbourville.

State police said Mahan, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle. He was flown to the University of Kentucky Hospital, where he died. Gray was taken to a local hospital, which had no information available on his condition on Sunday night.

Police said in a statement that they suspect drug usage contributed to the crash.
