Kentucky State Police Post 15, Mayfield, KY
CADIZ, KY (Sat 3 Jun 2017) - Kentucky State Police Post 1 Collision Reconstructionists are investigating a two vehicle collision that occurred Saturday afternoon, which claimed the life of one driver. At approximately 2:30pmCT, on June 3, KSP Post 1 Dispatch received a report of a two vehicle collision on Highway 272 (Caledonia Road) at the intersection of Sinking Fork Road.
Preliminary investigation has shown a male who has yet to be positively identified was driving a 1990 Ford F150 westbound on Highway 272 when, for an unknown reason, he entered the eastbound lane. At the same time, Kendra D. Johnson, age 37, of Cadiz, Kentucky was driving a 2010 Nissan Frontier eastbound on Highway 272. The two vehicles hit head on, near the intersection of Sinking Fork Road. The Ford F150 caught fire after the collision.
Trigg County Ambulance transported Kendra Johnson and a juvenile passenger to Jeannie Stewart Medical Center for the treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The juvenile was then flown by helicopter to Vanderbilt Medical Center for the treatment of her non-life threatening injuries.
Trigg County Coroner's Office responded to the scene and pronounced the male driver of the Ford F150 deceased at the scene.
Kentucky State Police were assisted at the scene by the Trigg County Sheriff Office, Trigg County Rescue Squad, Caledonia Pee-dee Fire Department, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Trigg County Coroner, and Trigg County Ambulance.
The investigation is continuing by Detective Eric Fields, KSP Reconstructionist. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police Post 1 at 270-856-3721 or anonymously at 1-800-222-5555. Citizens may also report tips anonymously through the KSP app. The app is available for iPhone, iPad and Android applications and can be easily downloaded free of charge through Apple and Google Play stores.
