Suspect in fatal Henderson wreck appears in court

Posted: Updated:
HENDERSON CO., KY (WFIE) -

In Henderson County, 42-year old William Patterson appeared in court Tuesday morning. 

Patterson was indicted after an April arrest where authorities say he ran from police on North Ingram Street.

In court Tuesday, Patterson asked to represent himself and the judge ordered a competency exam.

Patterson is also facing charges in another case.

Police say Patterson was under the influence earlier this month when he crossed several lanes of traffic on Highway 60 and hit a vehicle driven by 54-year old Sharon Gaines.

Gaines died at the scene.
