LYNN GROVE – Troopers with Kentucky State Police Post 1 are investigating a two-vehicle collision in Calloway County that sent two people to the hospital on Wednesday.
At around around 9:40 a.m. Wednesday, KSP troopers and Calloway County Sheriff’s Office deputies were notified of a two-vehicle injury collision on KY 94 West approximately two miles west of the Lynn Grove community, KSP said in a news release.
