MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - The McCracken County Sheriff's Department responded to a roll over crash that sent one to the hospital.
Around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, emergency crews were dispatched to a single vehicle roll over crash on US 62/Blandville Road between Childress Road and Fisher Road.
The sheriff's department said it was determined that as 20-year-old Shawn Pace from Paducah was driving eastbound on US 62/Blandville Road he fell asleep while driving. Officers say he stated that he woke up once the car had left the road.
Officers say Pace left the road on the right side, hit an earth embankment and overturned about two times before coming to a rest on the driver's side in the ditch.
They say Pace freed himself from the wreckage by climbing out the front passenger window. He was taken by ambulance to a Paducah hospital for treatment of apparent non-life threatening injuries.
According to deputies, Pace was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. The road was closed for about an hour for the investigation and clean up of the scene. The Concord Fire Department helped at the scene.
