Graves Co. man injured in rollover crash on KY 80


A Graves County man was injured Thursday when his truck ran off the road and rolled over.

Graves County deputies were dispatched to an accident on KY 80 East in front of PGA at around 8:45 a.m.

Upon arrival, deputies learned that a 2011 Dodge Ram, operated by Charles Willett, 69, of Mayfield, was traveling East on KY 80 East.

Witnesses say the truck had crossed the median and come back into the eastbound lanes, before crossing all four lanes.

The truck struck a road sign in the median before overturning in front of the business.

Willett says he does not remember what happened, and it is believed that he suffered from a medical emergency.

He was pulled from the truck by members of the Mayfield Fire Department.

Willett was transported by helicopter to Vanderbilt for treatment of his injuries.

The westbound lanes of KY 80 East were shut down at KY 1124 for the helicopter.

The sheriff’s office was assisted on scene by Mayfield/Graves County EMS, the Mayfield Fire Department, Mayfield Police Department, the Kentucky State Police, and the KY Highway Department.
