A man had to be transported to the hospital around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday after a single-vehicle accident on LaFayette Road and Stone Valley Drive, according to a Hopkinsville Police Department report.

Police were called to the intersection in reference to a single-vehicle accident with a man complaining of injuries.

When they arrived, they found the vehicle facing south in the ditch on the west side of LaFayette.

The driver was identified as Wilbur F. Cook, 65, Hopkinsville, and was reportedly dazed, uncertain of what the year was and possibly having a diabetic emergency, the report said.

Cook was then transported to Jennie Stuart Medical Center by EMS. At the hospital, Cook told police he was going to turn right on Stone Valley but missed the turn because he could not see due to the rain.
