Two Injured in a Two Vehicle Collision on the Pennyrile Parkway
Date of News Release: 03/10/2010
(Madisonville, Ky.) -- Mark Tucker was driving his 1993 Ford F150 north on the Pennyrile Parkway hauling a load of scrap metal on a flatbed trailer. Mr. Scottie R. Sacre was behind Mr. Tucker in his 1999 Buick Park Avenue. Mr. Tucker lost control of the truck and trailer and struck the guardrail on the east side of the road. The truck then crossed both lanes and entered the median causing it to jackknife. The truck rolled onto its passenger side dumping the contents of the truck and trailer onto the parkway. A piece of the scrap metal from the truck struck Mr. Sacre's vehicle causing minor damage. Both, Mr. Tucker and his passenger, Michael Wells, were transported to Regional Medical Center for treatment.
