Two-Vehicle Collision Leads Results in Death of Paducah Man

fatalcrash copyFRANKFORT, Ky. (9/16/13) – On Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013, Kentucky State Police responded to a report of a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of State Route 1241 and State Route 408 East.
 
Once on the scene of the accident, after a short investigation, Troopers found that 81-year-old Jack Garland of Paducah was traveling west on SR408 East when he approached the intersection at SR1241. After the vehicle came to a complete stop, he proceeded through the intersection. Mr. Jackson Sanderson, 18, of Mayfield, who was traveling north on SR1214, crested a hill at the same intersection. The two vehicles collided, trapping Mr. Garland inside his vehicle. Mr. Sanderson’s vehicle came to rest in a gravel drive. Garland’s vehicle continued to travel across the intersection after the initial collision, and came to rest in a woodline. Mrs. Nancy Thurston, 66 of Boaz, KY, who was a passenger with Mr. Garland, had initially refused treatment; however she later drove herself to Lourdes Emergency Room for her injuries. Along with Mr. Sanderson, there was a 17-year-old passenger who sustained no injuries.
 
Garland was flown by Air Evac to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Tennessee where he succumbed to his injuries at approximately 8:51 p.m. The investigation continues by Trooper James Martin.
 
The Kentucky State Police was assisted on scene by the Graves County Sheriff’s Department, Mayfield EMS, Mayfield Fire Department, and Air Evac Lifeteam.
