A single vehicle wreck on the Dawson Springs Road last night injured the driver and caused a power outage.
The wreck happened around 7:30 near the Rooster Run Road intersection, with 46-year old Michael Story running off the road and hitting a power pole.
The Hopkinsville Fire Department was called for mutual aid to extricate Story from the wreckage, as the Christian County Rescue Squad was busy helping a man off of Pilot Rock who found himself trapped in a crevasse, according to Emergency Management Director Randy Graham.
The trapped hiker would be fine, while Story was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center.
A Pennyrile Electric power pole was snapped in the wreck, causing some customers north and west of Hopkinsville to be without electricity for about an hour.
