PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - A Paducah man was injured in an ATV wreck on Sunday.
Around 1:43 p.m. McCracken County Sheriff's deputies responded to the 8100 block of Old Mayfield Road, to a report of a single vehicle injury wreck involving an ATV.
Deputies say Adam Butterbaugh, 25, of Paducah, was driving a 2013 Honda Rancher ATV, northbound on Old Mayfield Road. He had a car tire on the front rack of the ATV. As he began to slow down, the tire, that was not secured, fell off the front of the ATV.
Butterbaugh could not avoid hitting the tire. The impact caused the ATV to flip, ejecting Adam. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. He was taken to Baptist Health for non-life threatening injuries.
Butterbaugh was cited for operating an ATV on the roadway.
