Accident 8 14

UPDATE: HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (8/15/18) — Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office reported they are still seeking information to find the driver involved in a hit and run that occurred Tuesday night in St. Charles.

One victim was flown by medical helicopter for treatment of injuries.

According to a HCSO preliminary news release, 19-year-old Kelsey Sisk of Dawson Springs was driving west on Nortonville Road at approximately 9:30 p.m. Sisk and passenger Chandler Martin, 18, told deputies a deer ran onto the road, causing Sisk to swerve, run off the highway and strike a driveway culvert.

The vehicle became airborne and landed about 50 feet away, re-entered the road and came to rest crossing both lanes of travel, HCSO Josh Gunn reported.

The report also listed witnesses at the scene said another vehicle traveling west approached the scene, struck the wrecked vehicle and left the scene toward Dawson Springs. Witnesses were unable to describe the vehicle.

Sisk was ejected from her vehicle after it was struck, HCSO reported. Martin was not injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call Deputy Gunn at (270) 821-5661.
