accident w injuries redPADUCAH, Ky. (4/8/13) – On April 7, 2013, McCracken County Sheriff’s Deputies were notified of an injury accident in the 2200 block of Lebanon Church Road just south of Old Mayfield Road at approximately 7:34 PM.
Investigation showed that 17-year-old Hunter Rommelman, of Paducah, KY, was operating a 2002 Mercedes coupe northbound on Lebanon Church Road. Rommelman admitted that he had taken his observation off the roadway to look at his cell phone and looked up just before making contact with another vehicle. The other vehicle was a 2006 Dodge Ram owned by Falconite Construction, pulling a small enclosed trailer traveling south bound. The pickup was being operated by 33-year-old Kelley Parker of Paducah, KY. Investigation showed that Rommelman crossed the center line, making contact with Parker, causing damage to both the pickup and the trailer. Rommelman continued northbound and struck a tree just off the roadway causing severe damage to his vehicle.
Rommelman was able to exit his vehicle through the rear window that was broken without having to be extricated. Rommelman refused treatment by Mercy EMS and was taken home by his parents.
Parker complained of minor injuries and was transported to Lourdes hospital for treatment. The roadway was shut down from Old Mayfield Road and part of Lebanon Church Road for just over 2 hours for cleanup and investigation. Hendron Fire Department, Mercy EMS, Larry Meadow’s Towing and BA’s Towing all assisted with the collision and cleanup.
Kelley D. Parker was cited to court for operating on a suspended operator’s license.
The use of a cell phone by Mr. Rommelman was listed as a contributing factor in the report as well as not being under proper control of his vehicle.
