Man in SUV crashes into Captain D's


A Mayfield man was arrested Sunday night after the SUV he was driving crossed into oncoming lanes on Hinkleville Road in Paducah, ran off the road and crashed into the front of Captain D's restaurant.

According to the arrest report, Davis J. Mills, 22, was driving a Toyota 4Runner westward at a high rate of speed about 10:10 p.m. with no headlights on, witnesses said, and went around a barrier wall and into the eastbound lanes at James-Sanders Boulevard.

Witnesses said Mills' vehicle hit the barrier wall and several traffic cones before he apparently lost control near the intersection of New Holt Road.

Mills' SUV jumped a curb, ran through a parking lot and crashed into the front of Captain D's at 5152 Hinkleville Road, coming to rest in the dining area.

No injuries were reported by anyone in the restaurant.

Mills was taken to Mercy Health-Lourdes Hospital for treatment, then arrested on charges of first-degree criminal mischief and driving under the influence. Officers said he smelled of burned marijuana, and admitted having smoked marijuana about an hour prior to the crash.

Davis was booked into McCracken County Regional Jail on $1,500 cash bond.
