MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

The McCracken County Sheriff's Department is reporting it is investigating a two vehicle collision that occurred on Sunday, Feb. 7.

McCracken County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a two vehicle injury collision at the intersection of US Hwy 45 and Hwy 1241 Sunday morning.

An initial investigation revealed Christopher Moore, 25, of Paducah, was driving westbound on Old US Hwy 45, in a 2008 Ford passenger car. Robin Moxey, 25, Jaelel Morris, 9, and Kevon Moxey, 5, all of Paducah, were passengers in the vehicle.

As Moore came to the intersection of new US HWY 45 he attempted to cross the highway, but failed to yield the right of way to a 1995 Ford passenger car driving southbound. The vehicle was being driven by Theresa Perkins, 49, of Mayfield.

Perkins attempted to avoid the collision but could not and hit the passenger side of Moore’s vehicle.

All parties involved were transported to local hospitals for non-incapacitating injuries.

Both southbound lanes of US Hwy 45 were shut down for approximately 45 minutes for investigation and clean-up of the scene.

The McCracken County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by the Mercy Regional Ambulance Service, the Hendron Fire Department and Stinnett’s Towing.

Deputy Crystal Nadeau was in charge of the investigation.
