Alcohol was allegedly involved in the wreck on W. 7th St. Wednesday morning that injured a Hopkinsville woman.
The collision happened just before 11 in front of the Westwood Senior Homes, according to the report from city police, which says 66-year old Brenda Paris turned out of the apartment complex parking lot into traffic and into the path of 51-year old Danny Ferrell of Paducah.
Ferrell continued on and pushed the vehicle driven by Ms. Paris into a vehicle parked nearby.
Police say Ferrell couldn’t give an account of what happened when police arrived and that he allegedly admitted to having drunk “too much.”
He refused field sobriety tests and the breath test and was charged with aggravated DUI. He also reportedly said he did not have any insurance.
Ms. Ferrell was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for her injuries.
