Child injured in single vehicle crash in KY

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - On Wednesday around 8:15 a.m. the McCracken County Sheriff's Department was dispatched to Krebs Station Road just east of Houser Road for a single vehicle injury collision.

Paula Martinez, 32, of Mayfield, Kentucky, was westbound on Krebs Station Road when a vehicle swerved into her lane.

Martinez said she dropped off the shoulder of the road and then over corrected, causing her to lose control of her vehicle.

She then slid sideways off the left side of the road and overturned.

A passenger in Martinez's vehicle, 3-year old Juan Martinez, was transported to a local hospital by Mercy Regional EMS for non-life threatening injuries.

Martinez was cited for operating on a suspended operator's license and failure to maintain insurance.

The Sheriff's Office was assisted at the scene by the Hendron Fire Department.
