A rear-end collision on East 9th Street in Hopkinsville Saturday morning injured a Todd County man.
The incident happened around 10:30 near Christian Quarry Road, according to the Hopkinsville Police report from Officer Joseph Rios, which says 55-year old Rickie Meacham of Hopkinsville was stopped and waiting to make a left turn into a business when he was rear-ended by a sedan driven by 44-year old James Russell of Guthrie.
Russell told police he briefly looked away and didn't have time to stop when he looked back at the road. Russell was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries, while Meacham went uninjured.
Both men were wearing seat belts.
