Driver flown to hospital after car crashes through Madisonville business

MADISONVILLE, KY (WFIE) - A Madisonville business will be closed through the weekend after a car ran through the building.

It happened Wednesday at Thifty Home Medical on East Arch Street.

Madisonville police say Matthew Grafft was driving on Arch Street when he lost control of the car. He hit a another car parked in the lot and then drove through the building before finally stopping on Scott Street.

Grafft was flown to the hospital because of injuries. No word on his condition.

Police say another man walking out of the building saw the car coming toward him and tried to get out of the way. He avoided being hit by the car but was hit by debris and he was taken to the hospital with injuries.

A post on Thifty Home Medical’s Facebook said everyone inside the building was fine.

We had a little bit of excitement this afternoon as a vehicle came through our store! We are so thankful that everyone...
