Man injured in Friday crash remains in hospital

Paducah police say a man injured in a two vehicle wreck on the Beltline overpass Friday night is still in the hospital as of Monday. 

The Paducah Police Department says 35-year-old Matthew J. Terpstra, of Paducah, had to be extracted from his vehicle by Paducah firefighters on Friday. He and the driver of the other vehicle — 20-year-old Ma'Ken A. Smith, also of Paducah — were taken to Baptist Health Paducah. 

A witness told police that the 2003 Nissan Murano driven by Smith was headed south when it crossed the road's center line and hit the 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Terpstra head on. 

After he was taken to Baptist Health Paducah, Terpstra was later transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Police say he was listed in stable condition this morning.
