The Kentucky State Police and Officials in Knott Co responded to a dirt bike accident in Knott Co. on Halloween night. According to reports, the crash happened at the junction of Hwy. 899 and Hollybush Rd. in the Pippa Passes community of Knott Co near Alice Lloyd College. Officials said a car was attempting to turn off of highway 899 when a 12 year-old boy drove up behind the car on his dirt bike and somehow managed to get his leg pinned between the bike and the car. When the boy managed to get his leg released, reports said he rode his dirt bike to his grandmother’s house and once his grandmother saw the extent of the boy’s injuries, she called for EMS. The boy was airlifted to Holston Valley Medical Center in Kingsport, Tennessee with a serious, but non-life threatening injury to his leg. No further information has been released at this time.
