A Todd County teen was injured in a wreck Monday morning.
Todd County Sheriff Joey Johnson says 17-year old Napalie Perry of Trenton swerved to miss an oncoming vehicle in her lane of travel on KY 104 about four miles south of Elkton around 7:30. Ms. Perry ran off the road and crashed and was taken by ambulance to Gateway Medical Center in Clarksville for non-life-threatening injuries.
Two men were arrested in Muhlenberg County over the weekend for alleged drug activity.
A news release from the Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Office says deputies went to a 3101 Highway 949 address to perform a controlled buy after an investigation led them to believe drug activity was going on in that area.
The operation led to the arrests of Anthony Visconti of Russellville and 35-year old Thomas Craig of Dunmor. Both men were charged with trafficking in marijuana and lodged in the Muhlenberg County Jail.
An arrest has been made in connection with recent vandalism in Trenton.
Todd County Sheriff's Deputy Tracy White says he responded to the Trenton Market on Main Street Friday after someone had damaged the sign. Surveillance cameras showed a man getting out of a black SUV, before approaching the store and committing the vandalism.
Deputy White was able to use the video to identify the suspect as 18-year old Devin Crabtree of Clarksville. The Clarksville Police Department assisted in locating Crabtree and he was arrested on charges of second degree criminal mischief.
Police in Todd County have investigated numerous instances of vandalism in Trenton in recent months, including several incidents where the front glass windows were broken out of businesses and other buildings. Crabtree has only been charged with the most recent crime.
Deputy White says a group of students from Clarksville Northeast High School have made restitution for some of the other recent incidents.
No one was injured, but fire destroyed a Todd County home early this morning.
Officials at the Todd County dispatch center say the first call of a fire at 2864 Stringtown Road came out around 4:14 a.m.
Fire-fighters from Elkton, Allegre, Honey Grove and Fairview responded and did their best to get the blaze under control. The former resident of the home was recently deceased, so no one was inside when the fire started.
Christian County would have four representatives in the state House of Representatives if a proposal from Democratic leadership passes next week—but none of those districts would be exclusively in Christian County.
As reported on WHOP Thursday, the proposal would have 9th District Representative Myron Dossett of Pembroke in a likely Republican primary match-up with 10th District Representative Ben Waide of Madisonville next year. The 9th District would cover the entire eastern boundary of Christian County and part of north Christian—extending into part of southern, central and north central Hopkins County.
Eighth District State Representative John Tilley would have most of Hopkinsville and a portion of western Chrisitan County and a large part of Trigg County. Fifth District Representative Kenny Imes of Murray would keep Calloway County, the rest of Trigg and southwestern Christian—including Herndon and Lafayette.
A very bizarre looking 4th District would includes a crescent-shaped portion of Christian County, wrapping around the east side of Hopkinsville and extending northwest to include all of Caldwell, Crittenden and Livingston counties. Republican Representative Lynn Bechler of Marion currently holds that seat.
The 16th District would remain Todd and Logan counties with a small portion of Warren. The 15th District would be all of Muhlenberg County and part of Hopkins.
The plan splits 24 counties and Speaker Greg Stumbo says he believes it would pass constitutional muster.
