A single-vehicle wreck in Webster County last night injured two Hopkins County residents.
A news release from Kentucky State Police says 57-year old Patsy Morseman of Hanson was southbound on the Pennyrile Parkway around 10pm when she ran into the median and lost control of her vehicle.
The vehicle overturned and entered the northbound lanes before striking a guardrail and coming to rest upright.
Ms. Morseman and her passenger—18-year old Savannah Morseman of Dawson Springs, were taken to Regional Medical Center for treatment of their injuries. Both women were wearing their seat belt.

Kentucky State Police and the Trigg County Sheriff’s Office combined to arrest three people on methamphetamine charges early this morning.
A news release from KSP says the Sheriff’s Office received a tip of drug activity on Twin Trees Road in Cadiz. After allegedly finding a meth lab, the Sheriff’s Office called for backup from state police to help with the investigation, clean-up and removal of the dangerous lab.
Charged with manufacturing methamphetamine was 35-year old Tracey Wagner of Cadiz, while 28-year old Tiffany Wagner was arrested and charged with complicity to manufacturing meth.
Also at the residence and charged with making methamphetamine was 45-year old Bryan Martin of Cadiz. All three were lodged in the Christian County Jail.
A Cadiz man was recently arrested and charged with multiple sex crimes.
The report from Cadiz Police says 31-year old Mark Oiler of 16 Short Street, Cadiz was arrested on the strength of an indictment after a Kentucky State Police investigation and charged with one count of first degree sexual abuse and four counts of sodomy.
Oiler was lodged in the Christian County Jail on 25-thousand dollars bond and was released the same day.
The 322-foot replacement span needed to repair the Eggner’s Ferry Bridge finally arrived at its destination late Monday afternoon.
The 30-mile trip went faster than expected, according to Highway Department Spokesman Keith Todd, who provided the media with updates as the barges carrying the span and two cranes made their way toward the bridge.
It will take a few days to secure the span to the existing bridge structure before concrete can be poured and then it will take a few more days for the concrete to cure. Hall Contracting was awarded a 7-million dollar contract to repair the bridge earlier this year.
