Man injured in hit and run in Graves County

UPDATE: The Graves County Sheriff’s Office says they have identified the victim and will be releasing more information later.


GRAVES COUNTY, KY — Law enforcement are working to identify a man seriously injured in a hit and run in Graves County.

Around 10:09 a.m. on Monday, Kentucky State Police got a call of a white man dressed in a black coat in the middle of State Route 564 near Burnett’s Chapel Road. The caller said the man seemed to be under the influence of alcohol/drugs.

Troopers then got another call that the man was screaming and cussing in the middle of the road while he was walking south towards Farmington.

As law enforcement were responding to the area, troopers got a third call that the man was possibly in a motorcycle crash. The caller said the man was lying in the middle of the road, unconscious, but breathing.

Graves County sheriff’s deputies arrived and found a man lying in the middle of the road and another man with him.

The man who found him told deputies he saw something in the middle of the road but thought it might be a joke, until he saw a foot. The man then called 911 and stayed with the victim until deputies arrived.

The victim was stabilized by EMS and he was airlifted to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Indiana. He had no form on identification on him.

Deputies are asking for help identifying the man.

He is approximately 25 to 35 years old, about 5’10” – 6’0″ tall, and weighs around 140 to 155 pounds. He has a small goatee on his chin, shaved head on the side, and hair cut short on top.

He has tattoos on both arms and his left shoulder. He was wearing jeans, gray Nike tennis shoes, a gray Burger King shirt, black hoodie, and a red and black jacket.

Anyone with information on the victim or the vehicle that hit him is asked to call the Graves County Sheriff’s Office at (270) 247-4501.
