Southern Crittenden County News: Oct. 2, 2008

At the time of this writing, Teddie Davenport, 56, of Dycusburg remains hospitalized at Vanderbilt in Nashville. He suffered serious injuries on Friday when he had a heart attack at the wheel of his vehicle, losing control and exiting the roadway at the Crittenden-Lyon county line on Hwy. 295. He was ejected from the driver's side window. Several emergency personnel responded and he was air lifted to Western Baptist Hospital in Paducah and later transferred to Nashville. His family extends thanks to everyone for their prayers during this time of need.
