2 injured in head on crash in McCracken County


Two people were injured Sunday afternoon in a head on crash in McCracken County.

According to the McCracken County Sheriff's Office, crews were dispatched to a crash on  6124 Old Mayfield Road just before 1:30.

An investigation showed 45-year-old Wendy Keeling of Goodlettsville, Tenn. was driving south on Old Mayfield Road when she says she applied the brakes on a curve.

Keeling said her car started to skid on the wet pavement and crossed the center line.

That's when she collided head on with 51-year-old Marion Coffelt of Paducah.

Coffelt was trapped inside his vehicle for around 45 minutes while emergency workers freed him from the wreckage.

Coffelt and Keeling were taken to Lourdes Hospital for treatment of what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.

The roadway was closed for over an hour for cleanup and investigation of the crash.

Both drivers had been strapped in and neither had any passengers.
