Crash in Hopkins County Monday Leads to Arrests

            What started out as a single vehicle crash in Nortonville Monday afternoon eventually led to two arrests.
            According to Kentucky State Police, 47 year old Violet D Rickard of Madisonville was on North Main Street when she lost control of her vehicle due to the icy road.  The vehicle struck a ditch, overturned and landed on its top.
            A passenger, 27 year old Joshua C Rickard of Earlington, was transported to Baptist Health Madisonville where he was treated and released, then arrested due to outstanding warrants.
            Ms. Rickard was charged with first offence DUI with aggravating circumstances, possession of an open alcoholic container in a motor vehicle, improper display of registration plates, no registration plates, no registration receipt and no insurance.
            She, too, was lodged at the Hopkins County Detention Center.
