Driver Injured When Car Slides into Ditch
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - A single-vehicle accident Tuesday morning injured the driver.
At about 9:20 am, McCracken County Sheriff Deputies were dispatched to North Friendship Road near the intersection of Seneca Lane.
Their investigation concluded that 75-year-old Sharon Cartner of Paducah was northbound when she lost control of her vehicle while negotiating the sharp left curve on wet roads. The vehicle skidded off the road and traveled to the bottom of a 20 foot ditch.
Cartner was taken to Baptist Health Paducah for treatment of her injuries.
North Friendship Road was closed in that area for about an hour while the vehicle was removed from the ditch.
