Crash 1 9

UPDATE: MADISONVILLE, Ky. (1/9/19) — Madisonville Police Department investigated a crash in the vicinity of Kentucky Avenue and Scott Street this afternoon that resulted in the driver being taken by medical helicopter for treatment of injuries.

A business was heavily damaged after the driver smashed through the storefront, and a customer quickly took evasive action to avoid possible demise.

MPD reported the driver, 41-year-old Matthew Grafft of Madisonville, lost control of an Oldsmobile Bravada headed west on East Arch Street at 1:45 p.m.

His vehicle struck an unoccupied Ford Edge in the Thrifty Home Medical lot on the corner of Arch Street, according to police. Grafft’s SUV went through the building before coming to rest on Scott Street.

As James Campbell was walking out of the building, Campbell saw the vehicle headed toward the building, MPD reported. He ran to the side of the structure to avoid being struck. However, he was pelted with debris from the wreckage.

Campbell was taken to Baptist Health Madisonville ER for treatment of injuries. Grafft was flown to an undisclosed medical facility. His condition is unknown.
