Two employees at a Powell County convenience store injured in a hit and run Saturday night remain at UK Hospital where they are expected to recover.
Crews responded to the E-Z Stop on Main Street in Clay City, around 4:30 p.m. According to State Police, the owner of E-Z Stop asked Jarrod Fugate, 19, Zachary Romans, 25, and Anthony Romans, 24, to leave the store when he said they were creating a disturbance.
Investigators said Fugate accelerated in reverse, hitting Tammy Curtis, 55, and then changed directions, striking Kayla Rivera, 23, and Virgel "Ben" Barnett, 84, before speeding away.
Curtis and Rivera were flown to UK Hospital. Barnett was treated on scene.
All three suspects were arrested in Montgomery County. They face various charges.
Investigators said they believe alcohol played a role in the incident.
