Speed and alcohol are believed to be contributing factors in a May 28 crash that injured the driver, according to police.

At approximately 11:50 p.m. May 28, reports were made to the Knox County Regional Communications Center of a crash on the Appleton Road, near Autumn Lane in Union. While Knox County Sheriff's Office deputies were responding, new information was received reporting that it was actually a crash with injury.

Responders arrived and found a 2016 Toyota Tacoma in the woods with heavy damage and a single occupant with injuries.

The incident is still under investigation, but it is believed the operator, Andrew Gamlin-Lacoy, 23, of Bernardstown, Mass., was traveling south on Appleton Road and failed to negotiate a corner, according to Knox County Chief Deputy Patrick Polky. The Toyota went off the road, struck a tree and came to rest in the woods.

Gamlin-Lacoy was taken to a local hospital for injuries, and the vehicle was towed due to inoperable damage. Speed and alcohol are believed to be contributing factors in the crash, Polky said.

The Sheriff's Office was assisted by Knox Regional Communications, Union Fire and Rescue, and Hometown Towing.
