Wreck Sends Cadiz Man to Nashville
By WestKYStar Staff
TRIGG COUNTY, KY - Reckless driving on a west Kentucky highway caused a Cadiz man to be airlifted to Nashville on Wednesday afternoon.
Nathaniel York and Joshua Holley were both traveling south on KY 1062 in separate trucks in the northbound and southbound lanes. As they crested a hill, York, in a black Chevrolet pickup truck, met another vehicle traveling north and veered into the right lane, where he struck the driver's side rear tire of Holley's white Dodge pickup.
Holley lost control of his vehicle, left the roadway, went airborne and struck a tree before coming to final rest on the driver’s side. Holley was transported by an Air Evac Helicopter to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville due to injuries. York was not injured but was cited for reckless driving. KSP Trooper Clinkenbeard was assisted on scene by Trigg County Sheriff's Department, Trigg County Rescue, Trigg County EMS and Air Evac Air Ambulance.
