A Hopkinsville man is in critical condition after a Sunday morning wreck in Lyon County.
Kentucky State Police say 34-year old Thomas Skinner of Hopkinsville was northbound in a pickup on KY 274 when he lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle dropped the left side of the roadway, went down a steep embankment, and came to final rest against a tree.
His passenger, eight-year old Maela Skinner of Hopkinsville, was able to get out of the truck and flag down help. Police say Thomas Skinner was trapped between the dashboard and steering wheel and had to be cut from the wreckage.
He was taken by helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was in critical condition. The child was treated and released from Baptist Health in Paducah.
