  • Hodgenville man injured in crash

    A Hodgenville man was seriously injured Friday morning when his southbound car ran through a cable median barrier spanning Interstate 65, then flipped, landing on its roof in the opposite lane.

    According to Hardin County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Greg Lowe, Christopher Miracle, 25, was southbound at approximately 5:30 a.m. when his compact car drifted into the path of another southbound vehicle, bumping it.

    Lowe said it appears that Miracle overcorrected from the slight impact, which caused his car to veer into the grassy, depressed median near the 95-mile marker.
