Man charged with DUI after accident
LANCASTER - One person was injured Monday afternoon as the result of a two-vehicle accident in front of Rocky Top Shell Mart on U.S. 27 in Garrard County.
Bobby Martin, 43, no address listed, was traveling southbound in a 1998 Ford Ranger Pickup when his vehicle left the roadway and struck an earthen embankment, according to state Trooper Tacket Wilson. The Martin pickup then hit a Frito Lays truck parked in the Rocky Top Shell parking lot. Martin was not wearing a seat belt, the trooper said.
Martin, who police say was allegedly driving under the influence of intoxicants, was ejected from the vehicle. He was transported by Garrard County Emergency Medical Service to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center.
