A man was injured around 6 p.m. Saturday after his vehicle left the roadway on LaFayette Road while allegedly driving under the influence, according to a Christian County Sheriff’s Office report.

Josh Moody, 37, Hopkinsville, reportedly told deputies that he was driving north on LaFayette when he entered an S-curve and hit the right hand guard rail, the report stated.

After hitting the right guard rail, his vehicle traveled across the road and into the oncoming traffic lane before hitting the left guard rail.

Moody reportedly continued along the left guard rail before leaving the roadway, hitting two mailboxes and coming to a rest in an earth embankment on the left side of LaFayette Road.

When deputies came in contact with Moody, he allegedly had a strong odor of alcohol coming from his person, according to the report.

Deputies also allegedly found bottles of alcohol in his vehicle, the report stated.

Due to his injuries received in the wreck, Moody was transported to Tennova Healthcare where he submitted to a blood test, the report added.
