About Car Accidents

Kentucky has been ranked as the 11th most dangerous state for car accidents, with average fatalities listed as 19.38 per 100,000. There are various types of car accidents, all of which can result in damage, injuries, or worse, a loss of life. Because of this, we ask that everyone should employ caution while driving on the road. Always be alert and conscious of other vehicles and pedestrians on the road. Be wary of hazards such as fixed objects and animals, both of which are dangerous obstacles when struck. One of the most important things to keep in mind is to always drive sober, especially as alcohol is considered a factor in 30% of Kentucky car accident fatalities. By following these rules, we can ensure our own safety as well as the safety of others in our surroundings.

A man was injured after crashing his car and was treated for opioid overdose.

The incident occurred around 9:40 am Thursday on Alben Barkley Drive.

Consequently, Weiland regained consciousness and was sent to Mercy Health Lourdes Hospital.

Weiland told Officer Thompson that he took Fentanyl while he was at a fast food restaurant near Paducah Tilghman High School. Also, he said driving at the restaurant was the last thing he recalled doing.

He was cited at the hospital and was charged with DUI.
