Single Vehicle Death on Pennyrile Parkway
By Caleb Campbell
Hopkinsville, KY – A single vehicle accident this morning on the Pennyrile Parkway in Christian County killed an Ohio man. Twenty-three-year old Eriel Valdes died on the scene after being ejected from his vehicle around 4:30 this morning. Valdes was driving south on the parkway and ran off the left side of the road, officers believe he overcorrected and then lost control. The SUV began to roll ejecting Valdes from the driver's seat. He was not wearing a seatbelt.
