MARSHALL COUNTY, KY — Kentucky State Police say a crash that blocked U.S. 641 near Interstate 69 in Marshall County for a time Wednesday involved a Marshall County Sheriff's Department deputy and another vehicle.
Sheriff Eddie McGuire tells Local 6 the deputy was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and asks the public to pray for him.
Kentucky State Police Post 1 first sent word of the crash around 5:19 p.m., asking drivers to avoid U.S. 641 near Interstate 69 in Marshall County because the roadway was blocked by the injury collision.
U.S. 641 was closed at Mayfield Highway/Kentucky 58 because of the collision while crash investigators complete their work at the scene.

Trooper say Marshall County Deputy Brandon Little was responding to a non-emergency call for service before the crash.
Little stopped at the intersection of U.S. 641 and KY 58 before turning west on KY 58. Troopers say Kevin Polk was driving a 2020 AT&T bucket truck south on US 641 and went through the intersection, striking the passenger's side of Little's patrol vehicle.
Little remains at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he is continuing to receive treatment for his injuries. Polk was also taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and he has since been released from the hospital.
