A three-vehicle wreck at North Drive and Richard Street yesterday morning injured four.
The crash happened just before 8:30, according to the report from Hopkinsville Police, which says 33-year old Kaneshia Wimberly of Hopkinsville was attempting to cross North Drive on Richard and pulled into the path of a vehicle driven by 29-year old Lashayla Mays of the city.
Ms. Mays was unable to stop and struck Wimberly’s vehicle—causing it to overturn and collide with a stopped vehicle driven by 29-year old Tasha Weaver of Hopkinsville.
All three drivers and Mays’ passenger, 24-year old Carleshia Dillard of Hopkinsville, were taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center.
Most people have likely gotten frustrated with a door-to-door salesman at some point, but a Clarksville man was arrested last night for allegedly going too far with his angst.
Clarksville Police were called to Amadeus Drive around 7:30 in reference to an alarm salesman who said a homeowner shot toward his feet after a knock at his door.
When officers arrived at 2169 Amadeus, they found a divot in the front yard that appeared to be caused by a gunshot. Upon further investigation, police determined 27-year old Kenneth Andrew Spurlock answered the door with a shotgun and told the 20-year old salesman to leave his property.
When the salesman didn’t leave immediately, Spurlock allegedly fired one shot into the ground about 7 to teen feet from where the salesman was standing. The salesman told police that Spurlock threatened to shoot again if he didn’t leave.
Spurlock was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and aggravated assault.
