Mayfield man injured in single-car crash in Graves Co., KY

GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A Mayfield, Kentucky man was injured in a single-car crash on Tuesday in Graves County.

The Graves County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a single vehicle injury collision on KY 1241 on Tuesday, at approximately 12:10 p.m. 

The collision occurred between Trinity Church Road and East Vaughn Road, about a mile south of Hickory.

The investigation showed that Billy Travis Jr., 50, of Mayfield, was northbound on KY 1241.

Travis apparently dropped off of the right side of the roadway and over corrected to the left.

His vehicle then crossed both lanes of travel and collided with a ditch on the west side of the roadway.

The vehicle traveled along the ditch line until it rolled over onto its driver’s side.

Travis’ left arm was pinned underneath his vehicle after it rolled over.

The Mayfield Fire Department and Mayfield/Graves County EMS arrived on scene and worked for several minutes to free Travis from the vehicle.

An air bag system, as well as the jaws of life, were used to lift the vehicle off of Travis’ arm.

The roof of the vehicle had to be partially cut off and removed in order for paramedics to gain access to Travis.

After Travis was removed from the vehicle, he was transported by EMS to a local parking lot where he was then transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee by Air Evac.

Travis was not wearing a seat belt.
