PADUCAH, KY - For the second time over the weekend, a chain-reaction crash on I-24 has sent someone to the hospital.
The McCracken County Sheriff's Department responded to an injury accident around 1:45 pm Sunday. The crash was in the westbound lanes of Interstate 24 near the 16 mile marker.

The force of the collision sent Chamberlain's F-150 sliding forward, and caused the Ford to strike19-year-old, Crystal Black's 2010 Dodge Charger in the rear.
Duckett had a passenger with him, 52-year-old Mary Duckett of Calvert City. She was transported to Lourdes Hospital by Mercy Regional EMS for injuries she obtained during the three vehicle collision.
