Vehicle crashes off U.S. 431, driver taken to hospital

There was a one-vehicle accident off of U.S. Highway 431 on Thursday.

Daviess County Sheriff Deputy says a woman was driving northbound on Highway 431 on Thursday morning when she looked in her rear view mirror and saw the white Cadillac behind her suddenly veer off the road and go into a ditch.

The white Cadillac was driven by a male driver from Owensboro who says he doesn't remember what happened, how fast he was traveling, how or why he veered off the roadway.

The driver was taken to the hospital in Owensbor, has multiple broken bones and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies say the driver told deputies he wasn't wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident and the driver's parents met them at the hospital.
