Two vehicle crashes investigated yesterday by city and county officers sent two of the three drivers involved to the hospital, though a motorcycle operator was transported to Jennie Stuart Medical Center and an SUV driver escaped injury.
Treated at Jennie Stuart Medical Center following a crash on Russellville Road at the bypass at 8:15 yesterday morning was 36-year old Arthur Tilley of 206 South Fowler Avenue.
That's according to the report filed by Sheriff's Captain Mike Johnson, who says Tilley’s motorcycle collided with the SUV operated by 58-year old Linda Wease of 700 Pembroke Road, who was attempting to make a left turn onto the by-pass and did not see the bike.
The other crash yesterday involving injury was investigated by city police officer Eugene Trumble on Fort Campbell Boulevard between Country Club Lane and Laurel Cove Drive.
Taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center was 39-year old Sherry L Morris of Hopkinsville.
The report says Ms. Morris was northbound when a vehicle exited the Goodwill building parking lot and the collision occurred.
The second vehicle was operated by 69-year old Mary O. Brown of Hopkinsville, who was not injured.
Hopkinsville Police are investigating a fight on Charlie Court last night that resulted in a juvenile sustaining a laceration.
Few details are left on the media version of the report, but the incident began around 11:30 at 200 Charlie, where Officer Morgan Lageman responded and writes many of the people involved had some type of minor injury.
The worst injury was on a 17-year old male, who had to be treated for a severe laceration. The alleged perpetrators are listed as friends and acquaintances to the victim.
No arrests have been made and the two suspects are listed as 18 and 23-years old.

Kentucky State Police are working in conjunction with Nashville authorities in investigating the death of a Tennessee man shortly after his involvement in a hit and run collision in McCracken County today.
Kentucky State Police were notified by the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office that a hit and run took place on I-24, near the 15 mile marker sometime around noon.
State Police say shortly after being notified to keep an eye out for a Mercedes, state troopers located the vehicle parked on the eastbound shoulder, near the 23 mile marker, with Gilbert Pearshall found dead behind the wheels from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Upon further investigation of Pearshall’s vehicle, state police say troopers discovered items that linked him to a murder that took place this morning in Nashville.
State Police say Pearsall was suspected of killing his estranged wife, Vickie Pearshall after she was found dead at a dental office where she worked around 7 a.m. in the Green Hills area of Nashville.
Kentucky State Police say they are investigating Gilbert Pearsall’s death as a suicide and will continue to work closely with the Metro Nashville Police with their murder investigation.
