Hit and run suspect caught after leaving license plate behind


On Friday night, Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Grigsby investigated a hit-and-run accident in which the fleeing vehicle lost its license plate which led police right to the driver.

That incident took place at Levi Jackson State Park around 8 p.m., in which one vehicle struck another vehicle, then fled the scene.

When Grigsby went to the scene of the accident, he found the license plate of the fleeing vehicle which had apparently fell off the car during the collision.

The vehicle was located at a residence off Betty Lane, one mile north of London, and the driver admitted during an interview he had left the scene because there were outstanding warrants on him.

Jackie E. Bowling, 30, of East Bernstadt, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, no operator’s license, no insurance, and two outstanding warrants for failing to appear in court. Bowling was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center after his arrest.
