PADUCAH, KY - A three-vehicle crash Tuesday morning south of Lone Oak injured one driver.
McCracken County Sheriff's Department responded to the intersection of Old U.S. Highway 45 and Lebanon Church Road at 7:00 am. They learned that 17-year-old Baylee Blackburn of Paducah was attempting to cross Old Highway 45 when she pulled into the path of a pickup truck driven by 46-year-old Edward Gagnon of Paducah. He attempted to avoid Blackburn's car, but struck the rear bumper, spinning it into an SUV that was waiting at the stop sign.
Gagnon and the driver of the SUV, 43-year-old Michelle Grisham of Paducah, were not injured, but Blackburn was taken to an area hospital by Mercy EMS for treatment of what appeared to be minor injuries.
Lone Oak Fire Department and B.A.'s Towing also helped at the scene. Traffic was slowed to one lane for approximately 30 minutes while the collision scene was investigated and cleaned up.
