A Kentucky State Trooper sustained minor injures in a wreck in Muhlenberg County Wednesday morning.
A news release from KSP says 41-year old Trooper Jerry Knight of Greenville was on patrol in his cruiser on KY 189 around 8 a.m. when 61-year old Daniel Taylor of Central City allegedly disregarded a traffic light and turned into his path.
Trooper Knight was unable to avoid a collision and the cars collided in the intersection. Both men were taken to Muhlenberg Community Hospital for treatment of their injuries and Trooper Knight was treated and released.
Both drivers were wearing a seat belt and Taylor was cited into court for failure to yield the right of way and disregarding a traffic control device.
