ACCIDENT ON LICK CREEK LEFT THREE INJURED
  A serious accident involving a county vehicle and a car Saturday evening on Lick Creek Road left three injured—one of them potentially facing several surgeries during recuperation.
  Father and son Jerry and Johnny Long—the passengers in the County Highway Department-owned black F-150—were on their way to deal with a road flooding situation on Lower Lick Creek at Porter Hollow, Highway Superintendent Robert Dedrick told the Review.
  Dedrick was already at that location waiting for his two employees and suspected something must have happened when they didn’t arrive as expected. They were traveling from Roans Creek where they had cut a downed tree from the roadway.
  The other vehicle, a black Nissan Sentra, was driven by 18 year old Aaron Vest.
