  • Man injured in crash

    A Magnolia man was injured in a two-vehicle collision just before 6 p.m. Sept. 12.

    Wendell Talley, 78, was driving a 2000 GMC Sonoma on Hwy. 1079 and attempted to make a right turn onto U.S. 31-E. He pulled into the path of a 1991 Geo Metro driven by Jay Williams, 55, of Scottsville.

    The Geo, which was traveling south on U.S. 31-E, came to rest at the edge of the roadway.

    Williams said he saw Talley’s pickup and attempted to avoid the collision, but was unable to do so, according to LaRue County Deputy Doug Sherrard.

    Blair drove the Jeep into a ditch in an attempt to avoid the oncoming truck. The Jeep went into a spin, crossed the roadway and overturned on the opposite side of the roadway.

    The red truck did not stop, according to Williamson.

    In the broadest sense, the population changes Kentucky has seen over the last 50 years have largely fallen in line with the country as a whole.

    We have both become increasingly urban, for example, with Kentucky’s tipping point coming in 1970, when the U.S. Census found for the first time that more than half of our citizens lived in or near a city. Both of us are also witnessing the same graying trend, which is no surprise because of advances in medicine and the growing number of Baby Boomers reaching retirement age.
