fatalcrash copyPADUCAH, KY (5/2/12) – At 2:27 AM on April 12, the McCracken County Sheriff’s Office received a call to an injury accident on Cairo Road at the intersection of Swanson Lane.
 
The accident involved a 2004 Honda Accord that had left the roadway and struck a tree, fatally injuring one of the occupants. The investigation is ongoing and is being reconstructed by the Paducah Police Accident Reconstruction Team. The name of the fatally injured person is being withheld pending notification of family members.
 
Traffic had to be diverted between Noble Road and Moody Road for approximately 5 hours while the Reconstructionist processed the scene. Speed appears to have been a factor in the accident.
 
Additional details will be made available as the investigation allows.
