McCracken wreck sends couple to hospital

Staff report

A couple was hospitalized after a single-vehicle wreck in McCracken County on Tuesday afternoon that caused a lane of U.S. 45 to close about 45 minutes, according to a McCracken County Sheriff's Department news release.

The sheriff's department received multiple calls about the wreck - at the intersection of Krebs Station Road and U.S. 45, south of Lone Oak - at 1:12 p.m., according to the release. When deputies arrived, it appeared that a 2002 Ford Ranger driven by Emanuel Wallace, 23, ran off the road and overturned in a ditch.

Wallace was southbound when he lost control of the vehicle for unknown reasons, but Wallace said a semitrailer passed the vehicle before the wreck.

Because of damage to the vehicle and its position, Wallace and his wife, Candace Wallace, 22, were unable to get out and were removed by responders from the Lone Oak Fire Department. The couple, who received non-life threatening injuries, were taken to Lourdes hospital, police said.
