A single-vehicle wreck on I-24 in Christian County yesterday morning injured the driver of the vehicle involved.
Kentucky State Police says 35-year old Kathy Rushing of Kevil was eastbound near the 81-mile-marker around 8:30am when she said she fell asleep at the wheel. Her vehicle drifted into the median, causing Ms. Rushing to wake up and over-correct.
The SUV overturned, coming to rest off the roadway in a ditch. Ms. Rushing was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for her injuries.
The cash register was stolen from a popular Amish store in Fairview over the weekend, though the perpetrator would be in for a surprise.
The theft happened sometime between Saturday evening and Monday morning at The Country Barn on Britmart Road, where David Weaver said someone broke into his store and took the register.
Weaver said he had removed all of the money from the register at close of business Saturday, but the actual cash register was valued at 400 dollars. No suspects are listed on the report by Deputy Eddie Frye and the investigation continues.
Over 16-hundred dollars worth of tools were stolen from a vehicle in the city in recent days, with no suspects listed on the report.
The theft happened at 3412 Greenwood Drive, where 72-year old William Blake told Hopkinsville Police that someone took a drill, impact wrench, ratchet set and several other tools between 7pm Saturday and 8am Tuesday.
Police continue to investigate, with all of the tools valued at $1,650.
A wreck involving an ATV in Muhlenberg County last night sent two people to an Evansville hospital by helicopter.
That incident happened around 7:30 on Kentucky 423, according to a news release from Kentucky State Police, which says 34-year old Bobby Oldham of Bremen was southbound when he lost control of the ATV and rolled it over.
Oldham and one of his passengers—32-year old Robin Oldham—were flown to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville. A second passenger—6-year old Mallory Oldham of Bremen—was treated at the scene.
Clarksville Police are investigating a shooting from yesterday afternoon, with one arrest made and many questions left unanswered.
Officers were called to Gateway Medical Center around 1:15pm after a 32-year old male showed up in a private vehicle with a superficial gunshot wound to the head and a wound to the leg.
No 911 calls of shots fired had been received, so police had to backtrack and were able to determine the incident happened in the area of Kellogg and Farris Street, which is near the campus of Austin Peay State University.
None of the involved parties had an association with the college, with a news release saying 35-year old Derrick Williams was driving the victim in the area when they had an altercation with 21-year old Kantrell Head.
Head was arrested, but only charged with theft for being in possession of a stolen firearm. Officers found shell casings in the area and found that the Child Learning Center on 8th Street had also been struck by gunfire, though no one was injured there.
Police are still sorting through different accounts of the story and ask anyone with informtion to call them at 931-645-8477. The victim is listed in stable condition.
