Two Calloway County men were sent to area hospitals, one of whom was later life-flighted to Evansville, after an accident yesterday near Dexter.
About 4:15 p.m. Monday the Calloway County Sheriff’s Office Emergency 911 received a call of a two-vehicle injury accident in the area of Radio Road and Toskana Drive, near Dexter. Deputies identified that one of the drivers was trapped within the vehicle and had to be removed by mechanical means upon arrival.
Matthew S. Smith, 32, of Dexter was driving south on Radio Road when a vehicle driven by Charles A. Stone, 32, of Murray pulled from Toskana Drive in to the path of Stone’s vehicle. Stone’s vehicle struck Smith’s vehicle in the driver’s door. Smith then left the roadway and came to rest on the west side of Radio Road. Stone’s vehicle left the roadway and came back on the roadway coming to rest in the northbound lane, just north of Toskana Drive. Both drivers were treated at the scene and taken to the Murray Calloway County Hospital for treatment. Stone was later transferred to an Evansville, Ind., hospital by Air Evac, where he was listed in critical condition. Smith remained at the Murray Calloway County Hospital, where he is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The Calloway County Sheriff’s Office, the Calloway County Fire and Rescue and Murray Calloway County Hospital Ambulance Service all responded to the accident.
