A Christian County Sheriff’s Deputy responding to a wreck with injuries became involved in a separate wreck with injuries on North Main Street this morning.
The incident happened around 7:45 near the intersection with Talbert Drive, where 54-year old Freida Catlett of Hopkinsville was attempting to make a left turn into the parking lot of the Kangaroo Mart and turned into the path of an oncoming police cruiser driven by 33-year old Deputy Sean Head of Hopkinsville.
Hopkinsville Police say Deputy Head had his emergency lights and siren activated and was en route to a wreck with minor injuries at Lacy Elementary School.
The deputy was unable to avoid a wreck and struck the passenger side of Ms. Catlett’s mini-van. Both drivers were taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center, with Deputy Head reporting a hip injury and Ms. Catlett chest injuries.
The wreck at Lacy Elementary School involved a school bus, though the minor injuries were reported by a person in the other vehicle.
