The pickup hit a suburban, ran off the road into the parking lot of Bank's Market, and hit a utility pole. The truck then crossed Maryland St. and crashed into the Music Zone building running through a wall inside the building before coming to a rest in the back.

The driver, Edward Travis of Paducah, was taken to an area hospital for treatment. No other injuries were reported.

Paducah inspectors were called to look at the damage and access damage to the building.
