Two injured in McCracken County wreck
Two people were taken to local hospitals after a wreck Friday afternoon, according to the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies say they responded to the report of a two-vehicle wreck around 2:51 p.m. in the 7000 block of Kentucky Dam Road.
They say 79-year-old Shirley Smith of Calvert City was headed eastbound on Kentucky Dam Road, and, at the same time, 32-year-old Ryan Green of Hampton was driving with his 4-year-old daughter Kaydin.
Deputies say Smith’s vehicle came into contact with pooling water, causing her to lose control and hit Greens vehicle. Both vehicles left the roadway. Green’s vehicle came to rest on the right shoulder, and Smith’s vehicle came to rest in a grassy area on the right side of the roadway.
Green and Smith were taken to local hospitals for treatment of "non-incapacitating injuries," deputies say. Green’s daughter was in a child safety seat and was not injured.
The McCracken County Sheriffs Department was assisted on scene by Mercy Regional EMS, Marshall County Ambulance Service, the Possum Trot Fire Department and Stennetts towing.
