Bypass accident injures local man

An accident on the Eagle Way Bypass Wednesday morning sent the driver of one of the vehicles to the hospital.

The collision report from Hopkinsville police says 88-year old Elizabeth Quarles of Hopkinsville had been eastbound and was trying to make a left turn into Tractor Supply when she struck a westbound pickup operated by 29-year old Trever Gayle of Hopkinsville.

Quarles said she never saw the truck and Gayle was taken by EMS to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for a head injury and back pain.

Quarles was not injured in the crash.
