Single Vehicle Accident

   On Thursday, April 13th at 3:20 p.m., a single vehicle accident occurred on KY 1847, 1 mile south of Hawesville. Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Hendrick reported that Cheryl A. Wroe, of Hawesville, was traveling west on Park Road in a 2016 Ram 1500, with passenger Dennis Wroe, when the trailer with a Zero Turn lawn mower began to fishtail, sending the vehicle into a fishtail as well. Wroe was unable to correct and ran off the roadway into a ditch, then hit a concrete driveway area which caused the vehicle to roll all the way over and land upright again. First Aid was administered on the scene of the accident by Hancock County EMS. The vehicle was towed due to very severe damage, and the trailer was damaged. The mower may have been damaged as well, it was reported.

Little, of Tell City, was driving a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee on State Route 69 South, 3 miles south of Hawesville, and stated that he was driving south bound when the vehicle hydroplaned, due to the rear tires having little to no tread.

Little was cited for not having an operator’s license.
