MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. - McCracken County sheriff's investigators say a missing stop sign played a major role in a two-car crash.

The crash happened on Old Highway 60 at the intersection of Ashland Avenue in West Paducah Tuesday.

Investigators say the white Chevy blazer and the green Honda collided because a stop sign in the area was missing.

Sheriff Jon Hayden says while the incident is certainly cause for concern, a larger worry is when people steal road signs.

If you have any information about the theft of the stop sign, call the sheriff's department.

The two people involved in Tuesday's crash were taken to the hospital for injuries.
