I-69 Crash Sends Driver to Nashville Hospital
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MARSHALL COUNTY - A rollover crash Wednesday morning in Marshall County sent the driver to a Tennessee hospital.

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office says the wreck happened around 6:40 am in the northbound lane of I-69 at exit 43. Michael Lumson told deputies he was behind a slower-moving vehicle in the right lane, so he merged into the left lane to pass the vehicle.

The slower-moving vehicle then reportedly veered toward the left lane, causing Lumson to swerve to avoid contact. Lumson's vehicle then ran off the left shoulder of the road, struck the median, rolled onto its roof and slid across both southbond lanes, before leaving the road and striking a fence.

Lumson was transported to Marshall County Hospital and then airlifted to a Nashville hospital for further treatment.
