SITKA, Ky. — Some Johnson County firefighters came to the aid of an expectant mother who was involved in a crash on Sunday.
The woman was involved in a single-car crash on Route 201 at Sitka around 8 o’clock Sunday morning.
When firefighters from W.R. Castle Fire and Rescue and Flat Gap Volunteer Fire Department arrived on the scene, the woman was still trapped inside her car. According to a post on the W.R.
