An unusual wreck in the parking lot of a local diner sent a well-known Pembroke Road man to Jennie Stuart Medical Center this afternoon.
The incident happened around 12:30 at the S&J Café just north of Pembroke, with Christian County Sheriff’s Captain Chris Miller describing what happened while on the scene.
Captain Miller said 72-year old Dorris Murphy only sustained minor injuries and that he would be taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center.
Murphy’s Pembroke Road house is always one of the most decorated in Christian County for every holiday—especially Christmas—when many motorists will make a special trip to see his light displays.

A Clarksville man was lifeflighted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he is listed in stable condition after allegedly being shot following a drug deal gone bad Sunday night.
Clarksville Police say officers responded to the area of Golf Club Lane in reference to a shooting and when officers arrived on the scene, they found 20-year old Harley Daniel Bronaugh with a gun shot wound to the left side of his body.
An investigation revealed that on Sunday around 6:40 p.m. Bronaugh arrived at Alma Lane to meet with the suspect, Qwentin Banks to buy an unknown amount of Roxicodone pills and at some point during the transaction they got into a verbal argument.
Police say Bronaugh was sitting in the driver’s seat of a vehicle when Banks fired a shot from a handgun into the vehicle striking Bronaugh under his arm.
Witnesses told police that as Banks ran from the vehicle, he threw the handgun in a wooded area off of Alma Lane.

A Fort Campbell commander says he supports women serving closer to the front lines.
Earlier this year, Pentagon officials unveiled plans to allow female soldiers to serve in jobs once barred from women because it was deemed too dangerous.
1-32nd Cavalry Regiment Commander, Lieutenant Colonel Paul Taylor says the change in policy is a testament of the contributions made by female soldiers over the years.
Lieutenant Colonel Paul Taylor says the change in policy will have little effect on his regiment because female soldiers play a vital role in his ranks.
A vehicle versus power pole wreck on East 7th Street could have turned out much worse for a Hopkinsville woman this morning.
The incident happened just after 7 near the 15-hundred block, when 62-year old Vada Waddell of Hopkinsville ran off the roadway and struck the pole—breaking it off and knocking power lines to the street.
Initial reports indicated gas was leaking and the lines were sparking, but there was never any report of fire.
Ms. Waddell was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for treatment of a knee injury. She told police she couldn’t remember what happened or why she hit the pole.
The street was closed for over three hours while crews replaced the pole and removed lines from the street.
