Mayfield man crashes car after failing to stop at stop sign

A Mayfield man is being treated at Vanderbilt University Medical Center after crashing his car early Thursday morning.

The Graves County Sheriff’s Office says 27-year-old Robert Carter Jr. was driving down Rule Shack near Fancy Farm at a high rate of speed, when he went through the intersection of State Route 80 without stopping at the stop sign.

The car then went into a ditch and stopped about 100 feet north of the intersection.

Carter had injuries to his face and back. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The crash is under investigation and charges are expected.
