Eddyville Man Hurt in Crash Near Dycusburg

An Eddyville man was injured in a single-vehicle crash south of Dycusburg Wednesday morning, Kentucky State Police said this week.

Evan W. Rhodes, 20, was southbound on Ky. 295, approximately 4 miles south of Dycusburg, when the crash occurred at 10:22 a.m., police said.

Rhodes, driving a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, reportedly left the roadway and overcorrected, causing the vehicle to come back on the road at a near-90-degree angle.

The vehicle crossed both lanes of travel and exited the roadway once again.

It overturned in a ditch and struck a tree, coming to rest on its side against the tree, police said. Rhodes was transported by Crittenden County EMS personnel to Western Baptist Hospital for treatment.

He was wearing a seat belt, police said.
