GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon is saying a Hopkinsville, Kentucky man was injured in a semi rollover on Tuesday, September 6.  

According to the sheriff’s office, John Elliott, 41 of Hopkinsville, was driving northbound on KY 121 North on Tuesday around 11:30 a.m. Elliott was driving a 2008 Peterbilt refrigerated cargo truck when an object flew in through the driver’s side window hitting Elliot. The right side tires then began to drop off of the right side of the roadway.

The truck then rolled over on to its passenger side and came to rest. Elliott was transported to Jackson Purchase Medical Center by Mayfield/Graves County EMS for injuries to his shoulders and legs.

Traffic on KY 121 North was either reduced to one lane or completely halted until around 2 p.m. when the truck was overturned and removed from the roadway.

The sheriff’s office was assisted at the scene by Mayfield/Graves County EMS, the Mayfield Fire Department, the Graves County Health Department, the Lowes and Fancy Farm Fire Departments and the KYTC.
