MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

One person was injured in a crash on July 6 in McCracken County.

According to deputies, they were dispatched to the intersection of Old Mayfield Road and Elmdale Street at about 6:40 p.m.

They say 53-year-old Billy Joe Powell, of Paducah, was driving a white 1996 Buick Century westbound on Old Mayfield Road and collided with a beige 1997 Hyundai driven by 39-year-old Christopher Ware, of South Fulton, Tenn., who was going eastbound.

Deputies say Powell as trying to turn onto Elmdale Rd. at the time of the crash.

Both drivers refused treatment at the scene; however, Ware went by personal vehicle to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Old Mayfield Road was blocked between Elmdale Street and Broyles Ave. for about 45 minutes due to the crash and clean up.
