Two Cadiz men are in a Nashville hospital after a wreck in Trigg County Monday evening.
A news release from Kentucky State Police says the incident happened around 8:10 near the eastern edge of the Cadiz city limits on US 68-80. Preliminary investigation by KSP determined 20-year old Nicholas Wiseman of Cadiz had been eastbound on 68 when he struck a deer.
Wiseman’s vehicle became disabled and 47-year old Scotty Gray of Cadiz stopped to assist in getting the pickup off the road.
Approaching from behind in a tractor-trailer was 50-year old Mohamed Mohamud of Missouri, who was not able to stop in time to avoid hitting Wiseman’s disabled pickup, pushing it into Gray’s vehicle. Wiseman had been standing near his pickup and was struck by a vehicle during the wreck.
Gray had been in his vehicle wearing a seat belt and was taken by ambulance to Trigg County Hospital before being flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for life-threatening injuries. Wiseman was taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center where he was stabilized before being transferred to Vanderbilt by ambulance.
Wiseman is listed in stable condition, while Gray is in critical, but stable condition.
Mohamud went uninjured in the incident. The investigation continues by Kentucky State Police.
