CORBIN, Ky. (AP) - Police in southern Kentucky are searching for a man who escaped home incarceration after being charged with running over a teen riding a bicycle.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root told The Times-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1vGLu0D ) that 47-year-old Terry Mullins of Corbin was seen leaving his home on foot Friday afternoon.

Mullins was on home incarceration after he allegedly struck a 17-year-old male riding a bicycle on U.S. 25 on Sept. 5. Police say Mullins was driving under the influence when the incident occurred.

The teen’s backpack was found embedded in Mullins’ van’s front grill after Mullins allegedly fled the scene. The teen was critically injured.

Mullins is described as a white male, 5 foot 9 inches tall, 150 pounds. He has brown hair, green eyes and has a left metal prosthesis leg.
