Bowling Green Man Injured in Wreck on Scottsville Road

A Bowling Green man is flown to Vanderbilt Hospital after being injured in a wreck on Scottsville Road this morning.

Kentucky State Police say the wreck happened just before 10:30.

KSP says the driver of a tractor-trailer southbound on Scottsville Road tried to make a u-turn from the right lane.

The driver said he didn't see a box truck in the left lane, which tried to avoid the crash, but ran into the rear of the tractor-trailer.

"The driver of the box truck was trapped for over an hour, while Alvaton and Bowling Green Fire Departments were finally able to extricate him from the vehicle. He's been transported by Air Evac to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville," said Terry Alexander, KSP.

KSP says 35-year-old Paul Watkins of Bowling Green suffered multiple injuries.

Vanderbilt says Watkins is in stable condition.
