The Dickenson County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two and remains on the hunt for a third suspect who fled the scene of an accident Sunday.
Deputies had been responding to a call in the Cutter Creek section of Dickenson County when a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed almost struck one of the deputy vehicles, according to an announcement from DCSO.
Deputies turned and activated emergency lights, which were seen by the driver and caused him “to turn at a high rate of speed, resulting in him losing control of the vehicle and crashing into a creek.”
According to the sheriff’s office, deputies approached the crash site on foot to check for injuries when they found Linzie A. Humes, the driver, and another subject, Matthew Adkins, on the side of the hill trying to flee the scene.
Deputies detained Adkins and another passenger, Jessica Kincaid, but Humes “fled into the woods after multiple verbal commands to stop,” police said. An area search was conducted but Humes remained at large Tuesday.
Adkins and Kincaid were arrested and held on a secure bond. The two remained in custody as of Tuesday morning.
Adkins is charged with felony possession of narcotics, possession of paraphernalia and obstructing justice. Kincaid is charged with felony possession of narcotics, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia and obstructing justice.
Humes is now charged with felony elude, felony possession of narcotics, felony driving, driving under the influence, driving revoked, multiple traffic infractions, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and obstructing justice.
