Two Cadiz residents were seriously injured and hospitalized after an accident involving two private vehicles and a tractor-trailer that happened Monday night in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 68/Ky. 80, just east of Southern States.

Nicholas Wiseman, 20, was taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Hopkinsville with “serious” injuries, while Scotty Gray, 47, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., with “life threatening” injuries, said a report by Trooper Jay Thomas of the Kentucky State Police.

Mohamed Mohamud, 50, of Creve Coeur, Mo., who was driving a Freightliner tractor-trailer, was wearing a seat belt and was not injured, the report indicated.

At press time, Wiseman, who was later taken to Vanderbilt, was in stable condition and Gray was in critical but stable condition, said hospital officials.

According to the KSP’s preliminary investigation, at about 8 p.m., Wiseman, who was driving a pickup east on U.S. 68/Ky. 80, hit a deer, after which his truck was disabled in the travel portion of the road. Gray, who was also traveling east, stopped to help Wiseman get his disabled car off the road, and was standing outside his vehicle to get a look at the damage, the report said.
