2 injured in Graves County ATV wreck

GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

The Graves County Sheriff's Office says speed and alcohol could have been a factor in an injury ATV wreck late Saturday afternoon.

Deputies were dispatched to the intersection of Wadesboro and Letha Road shortly after 5:30 p.m.

Deputies say two victims had been moved to a residence on County Line Road near Marshal County.

Christian Ringstaff, 22, of West Paducah and John Crenshaw, 27, of Melber, were found injured in the yard at a home on South County Line Road.

Ringstaff was taken to Mayfield-Graves County Airport and air lifted by AirEvac to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville. Crenshaw was taken to Lourdes Hospital in Paducah by Mayfield-Graves County EMS.

A preliminary investigation shows the man and woman were riding together southbound on Wadesboro Road. Crenshaw was driving the ATV.

Deputies say he was unable to negotiate a turn onto Letha Road. That's when the ATV the left the road, became airborne, and struck an embankment before both were thrown from the ATV.

Deputies say a preliminary investigation also shows that alcohol and speed were contributing factors.

The wreck is still under investigation by the sheriff's office.
