A wreck at South Main and East 7th yesterday morning injured two people.
The Hopkinsville Police report says the incident happened around 10am when 34-year old Terrence Tucker of Florida was eastbound on East 7th Street and drove into the intersection with South Main.

A passenger in the Tucker vehicle, 33-year old Ashlie Tucker of Florida, was taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center—as was Ms. Moore.
