8 injured in truck vs. bus crash in Graves County


Eight people were injured Friday afternoon in a truck vs. transit bus crash in Graves County, Ky.

It happened around 4:20 p.m. at the intersections of Hopewell and Westplains Road in Mayfield.

According to the sheriff's office, A Fulton County transit bus was westbound when a truck going northbound hit the drivers side of the bus near the rear wheels. Police say it appears the driver of the bus did not see the truck and failed to yield because of limited visibility at the intersection.

Seven people on the bus were taken to the hospital with one later flown to a Nashville hospital with a possible head injury. A passenger in the truck was taken to the hospital for a treatment of a broken leg.

Deputies are investigating the crash.
