Man arrested following Cadiz wreck

Staff report

A man faces multiple charges, including driving under the influence, stemming from a single-vehicle wreck in Cadiz on Saturday, according to Kentucky State Police.

KSP reported that when Trooper Michael Robichaud responded to the scene of the wreck - at the 9-mile marker of Kentucky 164, near Linton - he found a black Chevrolet Equinox down an embankment off of the right shoulder of the road. The vehicle had struck a utility pole, knocking it down, and there was no one in or around the vehicle when the trooper arrived.  

Paul Erexson was found walking a short distance from the scene of the wreck by state police. According to KSP, Erexson was the driver of the crashed Equinox and was intoxicated.

Erexson was arrested for driving under the influence on the first offense with aggravated circumstances, driving with a suspended or revoked operator's license, failure to produce an insurance card and possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle.

According to KSP, the wreck also caused a gray Nissan pickup that was headed west to become entangled in the downed power lines of the utility pole sometime before emergency personnel arrived. Police said the driver - Cadiz resident John Mitchell - was distracted by the Chevrolet wreck and became trapped in his vehicle once he came to a stop in the roadway.

The Pennyrile Electric Company freed Mitchell's vehicle, which sustained minor damage. No one was injured. Erexson was jailed in the Christian County Jail, and Robichaud's investigation continues.
