A single-vehicle wreck on Old Madisonville Road yesterday afternoon sent a local teen to the hospital.
The report from the Christian County Sheriff’s Office says the incident happened around 4:20 about four miles north of Hopkinsville on Old Madisonville Road.
47-year old Caleb Newton of 1459 Dogwood-Kelly Road was northbound when he said a truck passed him too closely, causing him to run off the right side of the road.
Newton tried to bring his vehicle back onto the road, but his car instead crossed both lanes and hit a tree, coming to rest on its side.
A passenger, 13-year old Joshua Newton of the same address, was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for chest pain. Caleb Newton complained of neck pain, but did not require a trip to the hospital.
