A Graves County man was arrested after he allegedly crashed an all-terrain vehicle while driving under the influence.

Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says deputies were called to KY 464 just north of the Calloway County line around 3:00 a.m. on reports of an accident.

An ATV went off the road, into a ditch, and rolled over.

The passenger on the ATV, 20-year-old Cortney Shaeffer of Murray, says the driver, 27-year-old Matthew Colley of Farmington, left the scene after the crash.

She was taken to the Jackson Purchase Medical Center for apparent head injuries.

Kentucky State Troopers later found Colley at a home in Calloway County. He was also taken to Jackson Purchase Medical Center for injuries.

According to a witness and Shaeffer, Colley had been intoxicated at the time of the accident.

Colley was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident. He was taken to the Graves County Jail.
