Three people were injured and had to be transported to a hospital at around 12:30 a.m. Sunday after heavy rainfall and strong winds caused a two-vehicle collision on Interstate-24, according to a Christian County Sheriff’s Office report.

The report states Mariaha Moore, Hopkinsville, was driving west on I-24 in the left lane when, due to the heavy rain causing water to pool on the interstate, her vehicle hydroplaned and slid into the cable barrier on the left side of the road.

Look him up on Facebook, the car was a Genesis G80 and it's his cover photo. Additionally, she told us to help get him out of the driver's seat because he was stuck and when I asked her what happened she said she didn't know because she was asleep. Your reporting is in error.

Just paid for a subscription to this just to comment. Mariaha Moore was not driving the vehicle. Mr. Forte was. They lied to the deputy because he was under the influence and was traveling at near 80mph when the hydroplaned just seconds before we hit them. We almost died because of their negligence and your report makes it seem like it was just an unlucky accident. It wasn't. It was due to driving under the influence by Maurizio Forte, while driving recklessly.
