Section of Pennyrile Closed Briefly Sunday after Crash
Portions of the Pennyrile Parkway in Hopkins County were shut down for a short time following a two vehicle crash. Just after 1:00pm, KSP tells us 58 year old Michael Easley of Crofton was at the 46 mile marker. As he tried to pass a vehicle, driven by 49 year old Bill Harkrader of Sumner, Illinois, he began to hydroplane, striking a guardrail, then colliding with Harkrader’s vehicle. The second vehicle was pulling a camping trailer, which entered the median then rolled onto its side. No one was injured in the crash.
