Man injured in two-vehicle wreck

A Paducah man was taken to a local hospital after a two-vehicle wreck at the intersection of Bleich Road and Old Mayfield Road Tuesday, according to the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department. 

Deputies were dispatched to the scene around 1:35 p.m. Tuesday. They say 66-year-old David Funk and 65-year-old Brenda Funk of Paducah were northbound in a 2015 Nissan SUV on Old Mayfield Road waiting for traffic to clear so they could turn left onto Bleich Road when the SUV was struck from behind by a 2011 Kia driven by 25-year-old Grant Jones of Paducah. 

Deputies say Jones told them he’d been temporarily distracted by a disabled vehicle on the right shoulder just before his vehicle hit the SUV. 

David Funk was taken to a local hospital for injuries described as non-incapacitating.

The intersections traffic was slowed for about 30 minutes for the investigation and site cleanup.

The sheriff’s department was assisted at the scene by Mercy Regional EMS, Meadows Towing, Speedy’s Towing and Hendron Fire Department
