Two women were injured Thursday night after a two-car crash in McCracken County, Kentucky.

On December 15, at approximately 5:45 p.m., McCracken County Sheriff’s deputies responded to an injury crash at the intersection of Old Mayfield Road and Walnut Drive.

The investigation determined Jeni Hansen, 61, of Paducah, was traveling on Walnut Drive.  Hansen stopped at a stop sign on Walnut Drive at the intersection of Old Mayfield Road. 

After stopping, Hansen prepared to make a left turn south onto Old Mayfield Road.
