STANFORD — Police arrested a Moreland man early Sunday morning after he drove through the scene of a fatal accident, causing police officers and firefighters to scatter.
Charles R. Dotson, 32, faces 16 charges, including driving under the influence and nine counts of wantonly endangering police officers and firefighters, after he allegedly drove around stopped traffic, ignored police demands to stop and drove at a pair of troopers investigating the scene of a late-night fatal car crash.
Teresa Hoskins, 35, of Danville, was ejected and killed in a one-vehicle wreck on U.S. 150 near the Boyle-Lincoln county line at about 11 p.m. Saturday. The driver, Rodney Alcorn, 42, of Stanford, and Hoskins’ 4-year-old daughter were airlifted to the University of Kentucky following the accident.
About two hours after the accident occurred, Lincoln County deputies were directing traffic at the site of the accident when a vehicle “ran around several stopped cars and through the roadblock,” according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
