Police cruiser hits bicyclist

Staff report

A Paducah man was hospitalized in fair condition Monday night after police said he rode his bicycle into the path of a Paducah Police Department cruiser Sunday night on Joe Clifton Drive.

Officer Jason Hicks, 32, was responding to a call. As he reached Clay Street, Paducah resident Terry Stokes, 54, rode his bicycle into the road, and Hicks' cruiser hit the bike's front wheel, the department said.

Hicks was one of several officers responding to a fight involving 30 to 40 people at Dudley Court Apartments when the wreck occurred at 9:57 p.m., according to police. Hicks called in the collision, and several officers responding to the fight call stopped to aid Stokes.

Hicks was not injured in the collision. Stokes, who was taken to Baptist Health Paducah, was cited on charges of operating a non-motorized vehicle under the influence of intoxicants and having no lights on his bicycle.

The collision is under investigation by the department's Accident Reconstruction Team. At Paducah Police Chief Brandon Barnhill's request, a Kentucky State Police accident reconstructionist is conducting a parallel investigation.

There is video of the collision from Hicks' in-car camera, but the department said it is prohibited by law from releasing it because it could be presented as evidence in the DUI case.
