The incident happened around just before midnight, according to the report from the Sheriff’s Office, which says 41-year old Paul Rogers of the apartments pulled into the driveway when the gas pedal stuck.
His vehicle crashed into a gate and fence, injuring him and passenger 22-year old Amber Becker of Hopkinsville. Both were taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for treatment of their injuries.

Extra patrols were put on Clarksville streets, partially funded by the Governor’s Highway Safety Office, which resulted in seven DUI arrests, 29 speeding tickets, 23 equipment violations and 17 citations for drivers unable to provide proof of insurance.

More details are now known about the robbery of a Hopkinsville convenience store from early this morning.
The official report from Hopkinsville Police says a black male wearing a mask walked into the Fort Campbell Boulevard Max-Fuel Express just south of Clinic Drive around 2:17 and wielded a knife.
The 25-year old female cashier working had been sweeping the floor when the man wearing camouflage Army fatigues showed her the large machete knife and demanded all of the store’s money.
The suspect destroyed and removed the store’s surveillance system before fleeing the scene, with part of the equipment later found in a parking lot. The suspect reportedly fled on foot northward toward Wal-Mart.
He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and the destroyed security system is valued at $1,100.
