A Calvert City, Kentucky man faces charges after a wreck in McCracken County on Saturday night.

According to the sheriff's office, it happened shortly after 7:40 p.m. in the 6500 block of Benton Road in Paducah.

An investigation showed that Kim S. Joiner, 58, of Calvert City, Kentucky was traveling outbound on Benton Road when, he approached an inbound 1998 Pontiac being driven by Bobby Smith, 19, of Symsonia, Kentucky.
