Two people were injured in a violent wreck at Canton Pike and the bypass yesterday afternoon.
The incident happened around 3:30, according to the report from Hopkinsville Police, which says 21-year old Brittany Holland of Gracey was northbound on the bypass and said she didn’t see she had a red light until it was too late.
Ms. Holland reportedly ran into the left side of a vehicle driven by 48-year old Harold Thompson of Louisville, who was driving on Canton Pike and already in the intersection with a green light.
Thompson’s vehicle slid and then flipped several times through the intersection. The report says Ms. Holland was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center, while Thompson was injured but it doesn’t appear he required a trip to the hospital.
Some details are lacking, but one person is dead after a Muhlenberg County law enforcement official had to shoot him when he allegedly pulled a gun on officers.
The incident happened in the 300 block of Warford Street near Drakesboro just before 9pm Monday evening, where Sheriff Curtis McGehee and two deputies were responding to a call. Once there, a male suspect allegedly pointed some type of firearm at police. At least one of the officers fired a shot at the suspect out of self defense, with the suspect dying from his wounds shortly thereafter.
Kentucky State Police was called to the scene to investigate and will be releasing further details once they are all clear. The Sheriff and his deputies were physically fine after the incident.
