A local man was injured in a wreck on East 9th Street early Saturday morning and was cited into court on DUI charges.
The incident happened around ten minutes after four, according to the Hopkinsville Police report, which says 32-year old Gene Woods Jr. of Hopkinsville was eastbound on 9th, going about 35 miles per hour.
Woods told officers he had been texting while driving and that when he looked up, he was about to run off the road. Woods also allegedly admitted to drinking about a half pint of alcohol several hours earlier.
Officer Jerry Marcum found Woods unconscious in his vehicle, which had hit a utility pole, when he arrived. The car was still in drive, but the motor had died.
Police charged Woods with DUI, but he was only cited into court due to his injuries. Woods was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center and the report says he had not been wearing his seat belt.
