Marshall County’s Barnard injured in car wreck

Marshall County football coach Ron Barnard was in a one-car accident Friday afternoon when his truck veered off Route 68 near Briensburg, KY and struck a tree. Barnard was airlifted to a hospital in Evansville, Indiana.

We spoke with his wife, Michelle, early Friday night. She said her husband was unconscious and sedated, but in stable condition. Mrs. Barnard said he didn't suffer any internal or head injuries in the crash.  Doctors were running tests to hopefully help find out what caused him to drive off the road.

Mrs. Barnard also wished to thank everyone who had reached out to her family and offered their prayers throughout the day.

We'll update Barnard's condition when more information becomes available.
