Two men were injured in a single vehicle crash Thursday on I-69 at the seventy-six mile marker in Caldwell County.

According to Kentucky State Police, a preliminary investigation revealed that Gerald C. Williams, Paducah, was driving a pickup truck northbound on I-69, approximately three miles south of Princeton, when he stated he fell asleep and lost control of the truck. The vehicle reportedly exited the northbound side of the road and went into the median. Police say Williams over corrected which caused the truck to cross both northbound lanes and exit the right shoulder of the interstate and crash into a guardrail.

KSP indicates Williams and his passenger, Michael S. Turner, of Kevil, were both treated at the scene by Caldwell County EMS and transported by ambulance to the Caldwell County Medical Center. Both men were reportedly wearing seatbelts.

KSP was assisted on the scene by the Princeton Fire Department, Caldwell County EMS, and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
