Man hurt in crash that ended in creek


An early morning accident sent a Graves County man to the hospital.

Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says the accident happened at about 4:21 a.m. near where Ky 58 intersects Ky 301.

Deputies report Micky Morehead, 58 of Clear Springs, Kentucky, was driving south on Ky 301 when he passed through the intersection without stopping, lost control, and ran off the road into a field.

Morehead's vehicle kept going 50-75 yards before stopping in a creek, according to investigators.

Morehead was the only person in the car, and was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
