Man injured in two-vehicle wreck

Staff report

A Paducah man was hospitalized Saturday in a two-vehicle wreck at the intersection near the entrance of McCracken County High School, according to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies responded to the scene at about 3:48 p.m. Saturday. There, the sheriff's department reported, Marlon Brown, 41, had been headed east on Highway 60 west in his 2007 Chrysler passenger car when he failed to stop for a red light at the intersection.

As Brown went through the intersection his vehicle made contact with a 2014 BMW SUV occupied by two Paducah residents: driver Melissa Heine, 43, and passenger Brian Heine, 12. Heine was trying to make a left turn into McCracken High School from the westbound side of Highway 60 West - where the green turn arrow light was on - at the time of the wreck.

Brown was transported to Baptist Health Paducah. He remains there in critical but stable condition. Neither Brian nor Melissa Heine were treated for injuries.

Eastbound lanes of the highway were shut down for about an hour while emergency crews cleared the scene. Deputies were assisted by the Concord Fire Department, Mercy Regional Ambulance Service and B.A.'s Tow Service.
