Details have been released on a wreck Saturday afternoon on the Pennyrile Parkway that injured three people.

It happened about 12:45 p.m. and the report from Christian County Sheriff’s Deputy Will Meyers says 25-year old Michael Hepker of Rock Falls, Illinois was stopped on the shoulder of the northbound lanes and 38-year old Pamela Johnson of Clarksville had just merged onto the Parkway from I-24.

Hepker attempted to reenter traffic and his pickup collided with Johnson’s van.

Two of Johnson’s passengers, 13-year old Gwendalynn Johnson and 12-year old Breeanna Priko of Clarksville, were taken to local hospitals. Hepker’s passenger, 17-year old Bayeli Ferris of Sterling, Illinois, also went to the hospital.

All injuries were thought to be non-life-threatening.
