Alleged drunk driver injures 7-year-old, father

The trial of an alleged drunk driver involved in a serious wreck is scheduled to begin in Floyd County Circuit Court later this month.

Marion Kilburn, 51, was allegedly driving intoxicated when he pulled into the oncoming lane on U.S. 23 near Allen. Kilburn’s vehicle met another vehicle in a head-on collision. Olivia Conn, a 7-year-old from Prestonsburg, had to be transported to the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center for her nearly fatal injuries, including severed intestines and a broken spine. Conn’s father, Joey Conn, who was driving the vehicle, sustained broken ribs.

Just a few days before, Kilburn had been released from jail after a previous DUI charge. He has a history of the same, dating back to some prison time in 1989 for a DUI.
